Lee Pollock

“Churchill: Reader, Writer, Leader”

“History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it.”

That’s one promise that Winston Churchill kept. You could spend a lifetime reading Churchill (as well as working through all that has been, and continues to be, written about him). Churchill wrote more than 50 books, composed hundreds of articles, served as a war correspondent (where he was captured and survived a hair-raising escape), and was awarded a Nobel Prize in Literature.

Even if you haven’t devoted your life to Churchill’s works, you’ll want to dedicate a luncheon to them, especially as our speaker will be Lee Pollock. His generously illustrated presentation will draw on his experience as executive director of the Churchill Centre and as a trustee and advisor to the board of the Winston Churchill Society. Come, watch, and listen as he transports us to the library at Chartwell, Churchill’s country home, where he solidified his reputation as reader, writer and leader.
