We're pleased to host award-winning author, Michael Korda on Thursday, Nov. 2nd 7 p.m. at the Ridgefield Library. Mr. Korda will discuss his new book, Alone: Britain, Churchill and Dunkirk: Defeat into Victory. The book richly complements the newly released film (Dunkirk) by discussing the diplomatic failures and military miscalculations that led to that turning point in WWII. Mr. Korda was a young boy living in London with his family during the war, and the story also recounts his family's saga and the mass evacuation of London's children under "Operation PIed Piper".
