Well Read to host Churchill author signing

Well Read to host Churchill author signing

February 10th, 2013 in News

Historian Philip White, author of "Our Supreme Task: How Winston Churchill's Iron Curtain Speech Defined the Cold War Alliance" will be at Well Read book store on March 2 to discuss his tome, which addresses the most famous day in Fulton's history.

Starting at 2 p.m., White, in town for Westminster College's annual Churchill Weekend, will give an overview of his book followed by a question and answer session and a book signing.

The event coincides with the paperback release of "Our Supreme Task" on March 5, and there will be several advance paperback copies - as well as hardback books - available for purchase that afternoon.

Well Read owner Brian Warren said he arranged the event after meeting White in November when the author gave a lecture at Westminster on Churchill's famed visit to Fulton.

Warren said he is looking forward to hosting White and sharing "Our Supreme Task" with local readers, citing the book's connection to Fulton as one of the things that initially drew him to the story.
