Prince Harry Boy to Man

William Kuhn

Author and historian William Kuhn discusses his recently published satirical war novel, a lighthearted work of fiction that recounts Prince Harry’s wartime experiences in Afghanistan. A former historian in the Royal Archives at Windsor Castle, Kuhn will share personal anecdotes, including his impressions of a Christmas party at Buckingham Palace.

William Kuhn is an author and historian. His first novel Mrs Queen Takes the Train was a national bestseller and has been optioned by the Weinstein Company for a film. He is also the author of Reading Jackie: Her Autobiography in Books, a behind-the-scenes look at Jackie Kennedy Onassis at work as an editor at Viking and Doubleday based on archives and interviews with her colleagues. Prince Harry Boy to Man is his second novel.

This event is the second in a three-part series that features Athenæum Authors and Credit Cheryl Richardstheir work. Join us on September 11 to hear Jack Gantos discuss his most recent book, Writing Radar: Using Your Journal to Snoop Out and Craft Great Stories, and again on January 11 to hear Cullen Murphy speak about his newest book on the history of a community of cartoonists and illustrators from the Connecticut School, Cartoon County. Look for our Athenæum Authors feature on Cullen Murphy in December.
