Writers on a New England Stage @ The Historic Theater

A. Scott Berg

A. Scott Berg

“…an elegant, prize-winning biographer whose fluent prose and honest sense of majesty have much in common with Wilson’s own writing…” – The New Yorker

Praise for Lindbergh

“The most outstanding piece of nonfiction that I have read this year. Berg does a spectacular job…A substantial piece of history that illuminates an important figure in world history. It’s the kind of book that took almost a decade to create. And it’s worth it.”—USA Today

The Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer of Charles Lindbergh, Katharine Hepburn, Max Perkins and Sam Goldwyn visits with his new work on Woodrow Wilson. Ten years in the making, Wilson is the most personal and penetrating biography ever written of the 28th US President, an intimate portrait drawn from a particularly contemporary point of view. Don’t miss hearing from this celebrated biographer about one of the most influential figures of the twentieth century… and one of the most enigmatic.
