The Churchill Sisters

King Library Summer Programs
King Library
Tuesday, Jun 21, 2022 at 5:30 PM (ET)

Join us at the King Library for a book discussion of The Churchill Sisters: The Extraordinary Lives of Winston and Clementine's Daughters by Rachel Trethewey.

Facilitator: Dr. Richard D'Elia

Dr. Richard D’Elia was born in Manhattan and raised in Larchmont, New York. He has a great interest in Churchill and read his first Churchill biography at age nine. To better understand Churchill’s multifaceted life, he read about the social and political milieu in which Churchill lived and worked especially the pre and post WW II eras. Dr. D’Elia is both a retired Army officer and college professor.

Author: Rachel Trethewey

Book Description: Bright, attractive and well-connected, in any other family the Churchill girls – Diana, Sarah, Marigold and Mary – would have shone. But they were not in another family, they were Churchills, and neither they nor anyone else could ever forget it. From their father – ‘the greatest Englishman’ – to their brother, golden boy Randolph, to their eccentric and exciting cousins, the Mitford Girls, they were surrounded by a clan of larger-than-life characters which often saw them overlooked. While Marigold died too young to achieve her potential, the other daughters lived lives full of passion, drama, and tragedy.

Diana, intense and diffident; Sarah, glamorous and stubborn; Mary, dependable yet determined – each so different but each imbued with a sense of responsibility toward each other and their country. Far from being cosseted debutantes, these women were eyewitnesses at some of the most important events in world history, at Tehran, Yalta, and Potsdam. Yet this is not a story set on the battlefields or in Parliament; it is an intimate saga that sheds light on the complex dynamics of family set against the backdrop of a tumultuous century.

Drawing on previously unpublished family letters from the Churchill archives, The Churchill Sisters brings Winston’s daughters out of the shadows and tells their remarkable stories for the first time.
