The Robert H. H Jackson Center is pleased to host author Lynne Olson as this year’s Al and Marge Brown Lecture Series speaker, October 24 at 2:00 p.m. via a live stream. She will discuss her focus, writing process, and her research on the relationship between the United States and Great Britain during World War II.
Lynne Olson is a New York Times bestselling author of nine books of history including three New York Times Bestsellers: Madame Fourcade’s Secret War: The Daring Young Woman Who Led France’s Largest Spy Network Against the Nazi; Those Angry Days: Roosevelt, Lindbergh, and America’s Fight Over World War II, 1939-1941, and Citizens of London: The Americans Who Stood with Britain in Its Darkest, Finest Hour. Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright has called her “our era’s foremost chronicler of World War II politics and diplomacy.”
Olson’s latest book is Empress of the Nile: The Daredevil Archaeologist Who Saved Egypt’s Ancient Temples From Destruction.
Before becoming a full-time author, she worked as a journalist for ten years, first with the Associated Press as a national feature writer in New York, a foreign correspondent in AP’s Moscow bureau, and a political reporter in Washington. She left the AP to join the Washington bureau of the Baltimore Sun, where she covered national politics and eventually the White House.
