Erik Larson and Christina Baker Kline In Conversation about THE SPLENDID AND THE VILE via Zoom (4/22)
THE SPLENDID AND THE VILE takes readers out of today’s political dysfunction and back to a time of true leadership. On Winston Churchill’s first day as prime minister, Adolf Hitler invaded Holland and Belgium. Poland and Czechoslovakia had already fallen, and the Dunkirk evacuation was just two weeks away. For the next twelve months, Hitler would wage a relentless bombing campaign, killing 45,000 Britons. In the face of unrelenting horror, Churchill’s eloquence, courage, and perseverance bound a country, and a family, together.
Erik Larson is also the author of five national bestsellers: Dead Wake, In the Garden of Beasts, Thunderstruck, The Devil in the White City, and Isaac’s Storm, which have collectively sold more than nine million copies.
