About this Event:

The King’s Speech author Peter Conradi tells the true story behind the film starring Bill Murray, Hyde Park on Hudson, due out in the UK in February.  The film and Conradi’s book centre on a trip that George VI and the then Queen Elizabeth made to America in May/June 1939 on the eve of war. It was hugely significant in terms of Anglo-American relations. It is also a personal story, juxtaposing the King’s very straightforward private life with the many mistresses of Roosevelt. Conradi explains just why the question of whether the King would eat a hot dog became front-page news.

Conradi has worked as a foreign correspondent and is now Focus editor for The Sunday Times. He has written several books including The King’s Speech: How One Man Saved the British Monarchy and Hitler’s Piano Player: The Rise and Fall of Ernst Hanfstaengl.
