Franklin and Winston in the White House
Wednesday, June 7
More than 200 people gathered at the historic Decatur House on Lafayette Square in Washington, D. C. to listen to author and former Newsweek editor Jon Meacham discuss the relationship between President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston S. Churchill. The presentation was based on Meacham’s 2003 bestseller Franklin and Winston: An Intimate Portrait of an Epic Friendship.
The event was cosponsored by the White House Historical Association and the National Churchill Library and Center, and was introduced by Association President Stewart D. McLaurin and Library Director Michael F. Bishop. It was the first of what will doubtless be many collaborations between the two institutions.
