Note: This event is sold out



Amongst his many other attributes, Winston Churchill was an historian who had a powerful, living sense of the past which he used as a guide for the present. Sometimes this worked wonderfully, at others it let him down badly. His biographer Andrew Roberts will investigate Churchill’s sense of history and how it affected his statesmanship.

Andrew Roberts, Roger and Martha Mertz Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, is the author of Churchill: Walking with Destiny, a New York Times bestseller.
