Join us to hear Pulitzer Prize-winner author and University trustee Scott Berg '71 discuss his latest biography on the former President and, of course, former University President.

The New York Times proclaims that 'A. Scott Berg tells the story of Wilson, the man, very well indeed. The author of four previous prizewinning, best-selling biographies, he has a novelist’s eye for the striking detail, and a vivid prose style.'

Filled with new insight and detail, WILSON is not only a magnificent biography of a great and often misunderstood President whose ideas and ideals promise to endure for centuries to come, but a riveting narrative that spans seven crucial decades of American history, and above all a deeply emotional exploration of the entirety of Woodrow Wilson’s life – his dreams, his accomplishments, his affairs of the heart, and his all-too-human failings. A. Scott Berg gives us not just Wilson the icon, but Wilson the man.

A. Scott Berg graduated from Princeton University in 1971 and is the author of four previous bestselling biographies: Max Perkins: Editor of Genius (1978) received the National Book Award; with a Guggenheim Fellowship, he published Goldwyn: A Biography in 1989; Lindbergh (winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize) was published in 1998; and his biographical memoir of Katharine Hepburn, Kate Remembered, was the #1 bestseller for most of the summer of 2003. He lives in Los Angeles.

Tickets: £20 (£10 for dues-paying members)
