Powell's Books present Secretary Madeleine Albright at Bagdad Theater (Portland, OR) - Feb 20 2013

Event Date: 
February 20, 2013 - 19:00

Before Madeleine Albright turned 12, her life was shaken by the Nazi invasion of her native Prague, the Battle of Britain, the near-total destruction of European Jewry, the Allied victory in World War II, the rise of communism, and the onset of the Cold War.

Drawing on her memory, her parents' written reflections, interviews with contemporaries, and newly available documents, Albright recounts a tale that is by turns harrowing and inspiring.

In Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937-1948 (Harper Perennial), Albright reflects on her discovery of her family's Jewish heritage many decades after the war, on her Czech homeland's tangled history, and on the stark moral choices faced by her parents and their generation. At once a deeply personal memoir and an incisive work of history, Prague Winter serves as a guide to the future through the lessons of the past.

Secretary Albright will be joined in conversation by Maria Wulff, president of the World Affairs Council of Oregon. This event is cosponsored by the World Affairs Council of Oregon.

Tickets for this special event, $15.99, include admission and a copy of Prague Winter, and are available at the box offices of the Bagdad Theater and Crystal Ballroom, online at eTix.com, or by phone at 855-227-8499.

Books will be distributed at the event.
