+ Virtual Backup

Erik Larson’s page-turning nonfiction books intertwine multiple complex narrative threads. Pairing his love of research with an unwavering eye for what makes a story work, he discusses his topics with signature humility, candor, and a dry sense of humor.

Larson is the author of five bestsellers, including The Devil in the White City, which remained on the New York Times bestseller list for a total of six years and was voted one of the most important books of the last 125 years by the New York Public Library. His latest book, The Splendid and the Vile: A Saga of Churchill, Family, and Defiance During the Blitz, chronicles Winston Churchill’s harrowing first year as prime minister.

This in-person event takes place at Hopkins Center for the Arts. Ticket holders will have access to a virtual backup event if necessary. Proceeds from this event benefit Friends of the Hennepin County Library.
