3 September @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join bestselling (and incredibly funny) author Craig Brown, as he turns his attention to Queen Elizabeth II in an unforgettable and fascinating biography.

Virginia Woolf compared her to a caterpillar; Anne Frank kept pictures of her on the wall; Jimi Hendrix played her tune and Donald Trump offended her.

Queen Elizabeth II was famous for longer than anyone who ever lived. When people spoke of her, they spoke of themselves; when they dreamed of her, they dreamed of themselves. She mirrored their hopes and anxieties. To the optimist, she seemed an optimist; to the pessimist, a pessimist; to the awestruck, charismatic; and to the cynical, humdrum. Though by nature reserved and unassuming, her presence could fill presidents and rock gods with terror. For close to a century, she inhabited the psyche of a nation.

Combining biography, essays, cultural history, travelogue and satire, the best-selling author of Ma’am Darling and One Two Three Four: The Beatles in Time presents a kaleidoscopic portrait of this most public and private of sovereigns.
