Voted the Greatest Briton in a BBC poll, Churchill's Bestiary
paints a rich and intriguing portrait of Churchill, shedding new light and showcasing his wit, wisdom and wayward genius from an entirely new perspective.
Containing rare images and much unpublished material from the Churchill Archives, including a letter which casts an intriguing light on Churchill's pre-marital love life, Dr Piers Brendon looks deeper into Churchill's love of the animal kingdom.
In this fascinating book, critically-acclaimed author Piers Brendon explores the paradox of Churchill as the animal-loving-hunter: he hunts foxes yet keeps them as pets; he likes fishing but loves fish; along with the man who used analogies to animals time and time again in his speeches and writings.
Event will take place on the 3rd floor mezzanine. Talk will be followed by a book signing.
