King Edward VIII – An American Life

25 October, 2018 @ 17:30

Thurs 25th October 19:30 – Joint Oxford/Chicago event – King Edward VIII – An American Life

It is with great pleasure that the Oxford Society announces a special joint event with the University of Chicago Center in Paris, to take place on Thursday 25th October at 7.30pm. Special guest, author, historian and both a Cambridge (Downing) and Oxford alumnus, Ted Powell will be joining us to talk on the theme of “King Edward VIII – An American Life”. Although many of us know the story of the abdication, few of us know the details of his life in America afterwards and how this has influenced the relationship between the United States and the British Royal family (an interesting topic given the recent royal wedding). Ted will be sharing his insights during, what’s sure to be, a very stimulating evening. The event will be held at the University of Chicago’s premises in Paris: 6 Rue Thomas Mann, 75013 Paris. Drinks and nibbles will be provided, along with the opportunity to buy a signed copy of Ted’s book, published by Oxford University Press, at a special discounted rate. Further details can be found here. The event is free of charge but places are limited so be sure to RSVP directly to Bethan Meadowcroft (b.meadowcroft@gmail.com) to reserve a place. P.S. Guests welcome!
