Lectures at Lovett
We are excited to welcome the following speakers to campus. Many of these events are open to the public, so please plan to join us!
Olson is the author of the national bestseller Citizens of London, which was named one of the year’s top 10 Notable Nonfiction Books by the American Library Association. Her other books include Troublesome Young Men and Those Angry Days: Roosevelt, Lindbergh and America’s Fight Over World War II, 1939–1941, an instant New York Times bestseller and a New York Times Notable Book. Olson’s new book, Last Hope Island, is a groundbreaking account of how Britain became an island of refuge for Europeans escaping the blitzkrieg rolling over continental Europe.
Jonathan Sandys, a great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill, is an international public speaker on Churchill's life, legacy, and leadership skills. He will be interviewed by Glen Jackson, Lovett Class of 1981, about the role Churchill's spiritual beliefs played in his leadership on the world stage, especially during the Second World War, and what he believed about God. The conversation will offer a new perspective on the personal, political and spiritual path of one of twentieth century's most luminous figures. The event will be held Wednesday, November 8, at 7:00 pm in the Hendrix-Chenault Theater.
