Erik Larson— bestselling author of THE DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY and DEAD WAKE— discusses his latest, THE SPLENDID AND THE VILE. The book covers a year in the life of Winston Churchill at the height of World War 2. Erik talks about the leadership qualities of Churchill, how the citizens handled the threat of constant bombing, and whether bravery can be passed along. He also compares the situation we're currently facing with that of London during the bombings, and how the government leadership of that time differs from ours today. Join Erik Larson in conversation with Abbe Wright (READ IT FORWARD's Senior Editor)
