About this Event
Join us at Florence-Lauderdale Public Library for an author lunch with New York Times bestselling author Marie Benedict! Marie will be talking about her latest novel Lady Clementine, which explores the life of Clementine Churchill, whose story is much more than just being Winston Churchill's wife. Marie Benedict has dedicated her writing career to telling the stories of important but often overlooked women from history.
Each ticket includes entry to the event, a copy of Lady Clementine, and lunch from Chicken Salad Chick.
Author Lynda Cohen Loigman says of Lady Clementine:
"Marie Benedict has gifted us all with another thoughtful and illuminating behind-the-scenes look at one of history's most unusual and extraordinary women. Benedict stuns readers with a glorious assortment of Clementine Churchill's most personal secrets: her scandalous childhood, her unexpected role as a social outsider, her maternal insecurities, and the daily struggles she faces to smooth her husband's political blunders and to keep up with his relentless demands for guidance and attention. With a historian's eye and a writer's heart, Benedict provides an unforgettable glimpse into the private world of a brilliant woman whose impact and influence on world events deserves to be acknowledged."
