WATCH PAUL McCRANE READ “ARTILLERY OF WORDS” BY FREDERICK WOODS
BOOK #10 IN OUR '40TH READINGS AT CHARTWELL BOOKSELLERS' VIDEO SERIES
Frederick Woods was Winston Churchill’s original bibliographer. The publication of his A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE WORKS OF SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL in 1963 was a transformative moment in Churchill scholarship; the first true accounting of the scope and breadth of Winston Churchill as a writer. In 1992, he published ARTILLERY OF WORDS, his excellent literary analysis of “The Writings of Sir Winston Churchill.”
We are delighted to have the legendary actor and director, PAUL McCRANE as our guest reader for ARTILLERY OF WORDS .
FREDERICK WOODS (1932-1995) was a writer on a vast variety of subjects, also a broadcaster and a bookseller. Born in Swindon, he edited Winston Churchill’s earliest newspaper despatches as a war correspondent, for the book YOUNG WINSTON’S WARS, published in 1972.
PAUL McCRANE is one of America’s finest film, television and theater actors, an accomplished singer, as well as a busy television director; best known perhaps for his indelible roles in the movies Fame and Robo-Cop, and his long run on the television series ER.
