Discuss the book before our author event on February 18.

Join us as we discuss The Daughters of Yalta: The Churchills, Roosevelts, and Harrimans: A Story of Love and War by Catherine Grace Katz. Even though victory was within reach, tensions during the Yalta Conference in February 1945 endangered the wartime alliance between Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin. Three daughters were chosen to accompany their fathers to Yalta; glamorous young women whose intelligence, loyalty and political savvy would serve them well. Catherine Grace Katz reveals the previously untold story of Kathleen Harriman, Sarah Churchill, and Anna Roosevelt, figures who became surrounded by the dramatic political tumult of the moment, each tested and strengthened by what they experienced during the last days of World War II.

Copies of the book are available at the library. Ebook and eaudiobook versions available for checkout through Digital Library of Illinois or the Libby app on your device. 

Registration will close two hours before the program begins and registrants will receive a link to join shortly thereafter.

Please email community@wilmettelibrary.info with any questions about how to access the program via Zoom.
