The International Churchill Society is pleased to announce the 34th International Churchill Conference , “Churchill as International Statesman.” The Conference will be held at the historic Essex House hotel in New York City on October 10–12, 2017. This will be the first-ever International Churchill Conference held in New York, the city that Churchill first visited in 1895 and where he suffered his 1931 “misadventure”—being run over by a car on 5th Avenue. The history of the world hung in the balance just blocks from where we shall meet this autumn.

Return favorites will include Andrew Roberts, and David Lough on “Churchill and the Art of the Deal.”

One of the conference’s many highlights will be an interview by Celia Sandys, Churchill’s granddaughter, with Lady Williams (formerly Jane Portal), personal secretary to Churchill during his second premiership.
