WATCH ‘CHURCHILL & ROOSEVELT: THE COMPLETE CORRESPONDENCE’ READ BY EDITOR WARREN KIMBALL
BOOK #2 IN OUR '40TH READINGS AT CHARTWELL BOOKSELLERS' VIDEO SERIES
The most important book about Winston Churchill published in 1984, our second year of existence, was an encyclopedic three-volume set, CHURCHILL & ROOSEVELT: THE COMPLETE CORRESPONDENCE, edited by WARREN F. KIMBALL.
We are delighted to present Mr. KIMBALL himself reading the opening exchanges from his monumental work of epistolary scholarship.
On October 3, 1984, Chartwell Booksellers hosted its first-ever in-store Churchill event, a publication party for CHURCHILL & ROOSEVELT: THE COMPLETE CORRESPONDENCE and its editor, WARREN F. KIMBALL.
The party coincided with the first exhibition of Churchilliana ever mounted here at Chartwell Booksellers — “Churchill at Chartwell,” a lavish window display series that filled the Park Avenue Plaza arcade with “Churchill First Editions, Autograph Letters, Photographs & Ephemera” for the first time. Since then, we have exhibited literally hundreds of Churchillian rarities, but CHURCHILL & ROOSEVELT: THE COMPLETE CORRESPONDENCE will always remind us of the first.
WARREN F. KIMBALL is a historian of the Second World War and American foreign policy. A graduate of Georgetown University, he was an academic adviser to the Churchill Centre in London and taught at Rutgers University. He is author of THE JUGGLER: Franklin Roosevelt as Wartime Statesman and FORGED IN WAR: Roosevelt, Churchill and The Second World War.
