Barrett Bookstore and the Darien Community Association Present Erik Larson on Tuesday, February 15

Barrett Bookstore and the Darien Community Association are thrilled to announce a live, in-person event on Tuesday, February 15, at 7:00pm at the DCA with author Erik Larson, to celebrate the paperback release of his #1 New York Times bestseller The Splendid and the Vile.

The evening will feature a conversation with Erik and time for Q and A from the audience. A signed copy of The Splendid and the Vile is included in the ticket price and additional copies will be available at the event.

In The Splendid and the Vile, Larson delivers an intimate chronicle of Winston Churchill and London during the Blitz – an inspiring portrait of courage and leadership in a time of unprecedented crisis.

“One of (Erik Larson’s) best books yet…perfectly timed for the moment.”
– Time

“A bravura performance by one of America’s greatest storytellers.”

Ticket price ($25 DCA members, $35 public) includes a paperback copy of the book.

Register online by noon on February 14 at dariendca.org or contact the DCA at 203-655-9050 ext. 10.
