Women's Voices Book Club with Marie Benedict
Enjoy this complimentary event and discuss great books! A book discussion led by top bookseller Karin Barker begins at 6pm, followed by a 30 minute skype session with Marie Benedict to discuss her new book "Lady Clementine."
In 1909, Clementine Churchill steps off a train with her new husband, Winston. An angry woman emerges from the crowd, shoving him in the direction of an oncoming train. Just before he stumbles, Clementine grabs him by his suit jacket. This will not be the last time Clementine Churchill saves her husband. "Lady Clementine" is the ferocious story of a partner who did not flinch through the sweeping darkness of war, and who would not surrender either to expectations or to enemies.
Marie Benedict is a lawyer with more than ten years' experience, who found her calling unearthing the hidden historical stories of women. Her mission is to excavate from the past the most important, complex and fascinating women of history and bring them into the light of present-day.
