NCLC Speakers for Spring 2018 The National Churchill Library Hosts Authors and Authorities

The National Churchill Library and Center (NCLC) at the George Washington University in Washington, D. C. begins its second year with another impressive list of speakers. Novelist Robert Harris led off 2018 by discussing his new book Munich, which explores the inner workings of the infamous 1938 conference. Watch his interview with NCLC Director Michael F. Bishop.

Speakers presently scheduled for spring 2018 will also include:

Jeremy Suri: (February 26) Author of The Impossible Presidency, Professor Suri is Mack Brown Distinguished Chair for Leadership in Global Affairs at the University of Texas, Austin. His new book argues that the successful presidents of the past created unrealistic expectations for every president since JFK, with enormously problematic implications for American politics.

Brough Scott: (February 27 at 7 PM at the Salamander Resort & Spa in Middleburg, Virginia) Scott is a veteran jockey and television journalist who will be speaking with NCLC Director Michael F. Bishop about his new book Churchill at the Gallop detailing Churchill’s life-long relationship with horses. For a taste of the subject, watch this brief video of Scott discussing Churchill and horses.

Giles Milton: (March 5) is author of Churchill’s Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, which describes off-the-record special operations during the Second World War. Reviewed in Finest Hour 177, it was noted that “Milton’s engaging style makes his version accessible to the general reader, but he has also done his homework, having researched in many archives.”

Niall Ferguson: (March 20) is author of The Square and the Tower: Networks and Power, from the Freemasons to Facebook, and one of the world’s most renowned historians. His other books include Paper and Iron, The House of Rothschild, and The Pity of War. He is a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution on War Revolution and Peace at Stanford University.
