Young Titan: The Making of Winston Churchill

Mon, May 13 2013 - 6:00pm

Michael Shelden, Author, Young Titan: The Making of Winston Churchill

Monday Night Philosophy welcomes back acclaimed biographer Shelden to focus on the years between 1901 and 1915, which forged Winston Churchill’s character. At 40 Churchill was considered washed up, even though he had already built a modern navy and learned how to outwit more experienced rivals. Hear Shelden’s persuasive portrait of a dashing young suitor who pursued three great beauties of British society with his witty repartee, political flair and poetic letters.
