Each year, the Leon Levy Center for Biography selects a distinguished biographer to give the Inaugural Lecture. This year, the prize-winning author Ron Chernow will appear to discuss the art and craft of biography. To date, Mr. Chernow has written The House of Morgan, which won a National Book Award, The Warburgs, which was cited by the American Library Association as one of the year’s ten best books in 1993, Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, which was nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award and praised by The Times of London as “one of the great American biographies,” and Alexander Hamilton, which won a George Washington Book Prize for the year’s best book about the founding era. This fall, his Washington: A Life, a rare single volume, full-length portrait of George Washington, will be released by Penguin Press. Reservations required.
