Winston Churchill was one of the major figures of the 20th century, and his life as a young man -- so critical to his life’s mission -- is the subject of an acclaimed new book, ”Young Titan: The Making of Winston Churchill.” We are pleased to welcome the author, Michael Shelden, for a lecture about this fascinating and original exploration of Churchill’s life between 1901 and 1915. Pulitzer Prize winner Jon Meacham calls it ”a memorable portrait” of Churchill’s life and loves in this period. Shelden, who teaches at Indiana State University, is a former writer for the London Daily Telegraph and the author of four honored biographies including ”Mark Twain: Man in White” and ”Orwell: The Authorized Biography.” We will have first edition copies of ”Young Titan” for sale and signing at this event.
