The Daughters of Yalta: The Churchills, Roosevelts, and Harrimans

March 4, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join author Catherine Grace Katz for a virtual discussion on her book about Kathleen Harriman, a champion skier, war correspondent, and daughter of US Ambassador to the Soviet Union Averell Harriman; Sarah Churchill, an actress-turned-RAF officer, whose father Winston depended on her astute political mind; and Anna Roosevelt, chosen instead of her mother Eleanor to accompany the president to Yalta. Anna was the keeper of her father’s most damaging secrets. Situated in the political maelstrom that marked the transition to a post-war world, this is a remarkable untold story of the three intelligent young women who accompanied their famous fathers to the Yalta Conference in February 1945–and of the conference’s fateful reverberations in the waning days of World War II.
