Kingston WritersFest

Join us for a very special Giving Tuesday fundraising event featuring festival favorites Charlotte Gray and Lawrence Scanlan. In Passionate Mothers, Powerful Sons: The Lives of Jennie Jerome Churchill and Sara Delano Roosevelt, Charlotte presents an impeccably researched and captivating dual biography of two famous women whose sons would change the course of the 20th century. In conversation with Lawrence Scanlan, Charlotte offers intriguing social insights, challenges the perception that Jennie and Sara were lesser figures in the backdrop of history and argues that these two remarkable individuals were key in shaping the characters of the sons who adored them and in preparing them for leadership on the world stage. Leaders are not just born but made.Event Sponsor: The Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning
