WATCH STEVEN WEBER READ “WINSTON CHURCHILL AND EMERY REVES CORRESPONDENCE, 1937-1964”
BOOK #15 IN OUR '40TH READINGS AT CHARTWELL BOOKSELLERS' VIDEO SERIES
Published in 1997, WINSTON CHURCHILL AND EMERY REVES CORRESPONDENCE, 1937-1964, unearths — via the revelatory scholarship of Sir Martin Gilbert — Churchill’s four decade-long epistolary dialogue with his longtime literary manager, Emery Reves.
It is Book #15 in our 40TH READINGS AT CHARTWELL BOOKSELLERS video series, as read by the much-admired, multi-talented actor, STEVEN WEBER.
EMERY REVES (1904-1981) was one of Winston Churchill’s closest working partners and friends. The enterprising Hungarian-born founder of the independent press service known as Cooperation, Reves forcefully placed Churchill’s pro-democracy/anti-fascism articles in newspapers and magazines around the world during the years leading up to World War II, then acted as his agent following the war, negotiating the publication of Churchill’s war memoirs and, finally, his A History of the English-Speaking Peoples.
STEVEN WEBER continues to pursue a marvelously varied and successful acting career. On television, he is a regular on Chicago Med, having cemented his television stardom with a signature role on the long-running Wings in the 1990s. His extensive film work, beginning with The Flamingo Kid in 1984, includes roles in Single White Female and Leaving Las Vegas. He first appeared on Broadway in 1984 in Tom Stoppard’s The Real Thing and took over from Matthew Broderick as Leo Bloom in The Producers.
