Catherine Grace Katz: Daughters of Yalta (A LibraryEvent)

Our friends at Glencoe Public Library and the Highland Park Public Library are joining forces to present a slide lecture delivered by the amazing Catherine Grace Katz, author of The Daughters of Yalta: The Churchills, Roosevelts, and Harrimans: A Story of Love and War, which the Wall Street Journal called “an extraordinary work that reveals the human side underlying the politics.” This title has been a best-seller at The Book Stall ever since its publication, and we are big fans of the author and the book. (Note that the paperback arrives on our shelves on Tuesday, Oct. 19th!)

REGISTER HERE for this Zoom-based event, presented in partnership by the Glencoe Public Library and the Highland Park Public Library.

About the Book: Tensions during the Yalta Conference in February 1945 threatened to tear apart the wartime alliance among Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin just as victory was close at hand. Catherine Grace Katz uncovers the dramatic story of the three young women who were chosen by their fathers to travel with them to Yalta, each bound by fierce family loyalty, political savvy, and intertwined romances that powerfully colored these crucial days.

“In Catherine Grace Katz’s detailed behind the scenes account, she skillfully marshals diaries, letters, oral histories and memoirs…Entertaining history packed with vivid personalities, jockeying aides and insider observations about a pivotal moment in history.” — The New York Times     See more reviews
