About: Durham County Library will host popular lecturer Dr. Elliot Engel for “The Inimitable Winston Churchill” on Sunday, November 3, at 3 p.m. at the Main Library, 300 N. Roxboro St.

Engel is a scholar, performer and storyteller who has lectured and performed throughout the world for more than 20 years. Using anecdotes, analysis and large doses of humor, Engel explores Winston Churchill, one of the 20th century’s greatest heroes. Engel spent months researching Churchill, unearthing little-known facts and combining them to create virtually unknown biographical information. His resulting presentation reveals an inspiring public and private figure – and a touchingly human individual.

Engel earned his M.A. and Ph.D. as a Woodrow Wilson Fellow at UCLA, where he won the Outstanding Teacher Award. He has taught at the University of North Carolina, North Carolina State University and Duke University. His mini-lecture series on Charles Dickens ran on PBS television stations around the country. Engel’s articles have appeared in numerous newspapers and national magazines including Newsweek. He was recently inducted into the Royal Society of Arts in England for his 30 years of academic work and service in promoting Charles Dickens.
