Evening Book Club
Monday, April 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Evening Book Club is now meeting online via Zoom.
The book to be discussed at the April meeting is The Splendid and the Vile by Erik Larson.
In this “portrait of Winston Churchill and London during the Blitz, … Larson shows … how Churchill taught the British people ‘the art of being fearless.’ It is a story of political brinkmanship, but it’s also an intimate domestic drama set against the backdrop of Churchill’s prime-ministerial country home Chequers; his wartime retreat Ditchley, where he and his entourage go when the moon is brightest and the bombing threat is highest; and of course 10 Downing Street in London. Drawing on diaries, original archival documents, and once-secret intelligence reports, … Larson provides a new lens on London’s darkest year through the day-to-day experience of Churchill and his family.
