Lunch with Ken Burns and Geoffrey Ward — at The Willard
Politics and Prose, Monday, November 17 at 12pm
Willard InterContinental and Politics & Prose Literary Series

Enjoy lunch with acclaimed producer and documentary film maker Ken Burns as he discusses one of America's most beloved families: The Roosevelts. Ken Burns presents an extraordinarily personal portrait of America's greatest political family and its enormous impact on our nation in The Roosevelts, the tie-in volume to the PBS documentary to air in the fall of 2014. This revelatory book is an "intimate" history of three extraordinary individuals from the same extraordinary family—Theodore, Eleanor, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

The Willard InterContinental celebrates its literary roots partnering with famed Washington, D.C. independent bookstore, Politics & Prose on a series of teas and luncheons with notable authors and thinkers. The Series is a nod to the Willard’s literary history as the home away from home for such legendary writers as Walt Whitman, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, Emily Dickinson and Julia Ward Howe. The Series is curated by Politics & Prose, D.C.’s premiere independent bookstore celebrating thirty years in 2014.
