WATCH ESTHER, LADY GILBERT READ “IN SEARCH OF CHURCHILL” BY SIR MARTIN GILBERT
BOOK #12 IN OUR '40TH READINGS AT CHARTWELL BOOKSELLERS' VIDEO SERIES
Published in the U.S. in 1994, IN SEARCH OF CHURCHILL: A HISTORIAN’S JOURNEY is, without question, the most personal of Sir Martin Gilbert’s Churchill works, tracing his own journey writing the Official Churchill Biography. It is at once a memoir and a journal of discovery, filled with the many marvels of Sir Martin’s research method revealed.
It is Book #12 in our 40TH READINGS AT CHARTWELL BOOKSELLERS video series, as read by Sir Martin’s widow, Esther, Lady Gilbert.
IN SEARCH OF CHURCHILL is one of the only Martin Gilbert books published during the store’s lifetime that we did not celebrate with a publishing party because Sir Martin, at that time, was already curtailing his travel schedule due to heart issues. We sadly lost Sir Martin Gilbert, one of Chartwell Booksellers’ greatest friends and an inspiration to the store always, in 2015.
