Friday, Nov. 4 – David McCullough: History and the Love of Learning
The author known for entertaining but painstakingly researched historical works and biographies (1776, John Adams, Truman) didn’t set out to be a writer. In fact, he studied painting at Yale, and that painterly eye contributes to his books’ muralistic sweep. McCullough visits the Winter Park Institute to discuss his latest volume, The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris, which may plant a yearning in your breast for a trip to Paris of your own. – Jessica Bryce Young (8 p.m. at Knowles Memorial Chapel, Rollins College, 1000 Holt Ave., Winter Park; free; 407-691-1995; rollins.edu/wpi)
