Central Missourians interested in the history of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill will have an opportunity Sunday to hear a free lecture on Churchill and his role as an artist by Sir David Cannadine, a British historian and writer.
The lecture will be at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury on the campus of Westminster College in Fulton at the northwest corner of Westminster Avenue and 7th Street.
