The Life of War Hero and Travel Writer Patrick Leigh Fermor

Artemis Cooper will give a talk, including a visual presentation, about her new biography, Patrick Leigh Fermor: An Adventure.

From walking across pre-World War II Europe at 18, to capturing General Kriepe in Crete during the war, to building a villa in Greece, Leigh Fermor’s life was the stuff of ordinary people’s fantasies. Cooper had unprecedented access to the man himself, his closest friends, and his complete archive.
