Winston Churchill as an Agent of Change at RHPL

Winston Churchill was the greatest orator of his day, the greatest leader of the Second World War, the greatest statesman of his age, and the greatest Englishman of the twentieth century, perhaps of all time. The debt owed to Sir Winston Churchill by the free world remains immeasurable. Yet at the heart of this often intimidating colossus lay a man of vast humanity, enormous wit and boundless humor, much of it mischievous and a prolific writer. Cardimen will touch on all this and more during his lecture at the RHPL.

“Churchill embodies so much of Smart Towns’ theme as an agent of change,” said Cardimen. “His work during the war and in Parliament as well as his writings and leadership make him a fascinating historical figure. I am very excited to share more about his life with the patrons of the Rochester Hills Public Library.”

Smart Towns is a lifelong learning program for everyone in the community lead by education organizations. This lecture series is brought to you in partnership with several organizations in the community and the lectures are presented by experts in their respective fields of study. This year’s theme of Agents of Change.

“It’s always exciting to bring another Smart Towns lecture to the community. Our patrons are fascinated by history and we’re happy to bring programs that highlight important historical figures who continue to impact the modern world with their policies and legacies,” said Community Relations Specialist Amanda Harrison Keighley.

The program is December 11 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room and is open to everyone with an RHPL library card. This program is geared toward adults but all ages are welcome. Please register in advance at
