Friday, September 25, 8:00pm
Albright-Knox Art Gallery
VIP Wine & Cheese Reception with the Author at 7pm
Join us for an evening with America’s most engaging historical writer, Jill Lepore.
Lepore is a professor at Harvard University and has won some of the most prestigious accolades in the profession: a Bancroft Prize for the best book in American History, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and many more. At the same time, her books and New Yorker articles crackle with wit and humor, which has won her a remarkably wide readership.
At the Albright-Knox, Lepore will talk about her bestselling book, The Secret History of Wonder Woman. The Wall Street Journal calls it “lively, surprising, and occasionally salacious,” while NPR says that the book “relates a tale so improbable, so juicy, it’ll have you saying, ‘Merciful Minerva!’”
Talking Leaves Books will be on hand to sell copies of The Secret History of Wonder Woman and more, including Book of Ages: The Life and Opinions of Jane Franklin and The Whites of Their Eyes: The Tea Party’s Revolution and the Battle for American History. A book signing will follow the talk.
Free parking at the Albright-Knox is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
