Description

THE IMPROBABLE WENDELL WILLKIE

The Center is excited to welcome back two-time Pulitzer Prize winning biographer David Levering Lewis to explore the surprising portrait of Wendell Willkie, the businessman–turned–presidential candidate “who (almost) saved America’s dysfunctional political system.” The author of the two volume life of W.E.B. DuBois, and also of celebrated works about Martin Luther King, Jr., the Harlem Renaissance, and the Dreyfus Affair, David will offer an insightful exploration into the fascinating life of Wendell Willkie, to be followed by an engaging discussion and Q&A.
