Our Writers

 

Michael Korda is the author of numerous bestselling books and Editor-in-Chief Emeritus for Simon & Schuster.  Beginning in the 2000s, Korda wrote a number of history and biography books on the Hungarian Revolution, Dwight Eisenhower, T.E. Lawrence and Robert E. Lee.  On writing histories Korda said, "I've always wanted to write history, and it was only the accident of going to work for a book publisher in 1958 … that slowed me down."  He will discuss his latest book Alone: Britain, Churchill, and Dunkirk: Defeat into Victory.

Irene O’Garden has won or been nominated for prizes in nearly every writing category from stage to e-screen, hardcovers, as well as literary magazines and anthologies.  Her critically-acclaimed play, Women On Fire, played to sold-out houses at Off-Broadway’s Cherry Lane Theatre and was nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award.  We will learn more of her life through her new book Risking the Rapids: How my Wilderness Adventure Healed my Childhood.
