Paris in the Present Tense: A discussion with acclaimed novelist Mark Helprin

Paris in the Present Tense

Please join us as the National Churchill Library and Center welcomes Mark Helprin for a discussion of his new novel, Paris in the Present Tense, and the current state of U.S. foreign and defense policy.

Mark Helprin is a novelist and commentator, and the author of the acclaimed Winter's Tale, A Soldier of the Great War, In Sunlight and In Shadow, and many other novels and stories.  Of Winter's Tale, critic Benjamin De Mott wrote in the New York Times, "I find myself nervous, to a degree I don’t recall in my past as a reviewer, about failing the work, inadequately displaying its brilliance." 

Mr. Helprin is a fellow of the American Academy in Rome and a senior fellow of the Claremont Institute.  He served as an advisor and speechwiter for Robert Dole during his 1996 presidential campaign.  Born in New York, he served in the Israeli infantry and air force and holds degrees from Harvard University.
