THE CHANCELLOR: The Remarkable Odyssey of Angela Merkel
Acclaimed journalist and author KATI MARTON discusses her best-seller, the “captivating” and “masterpiece of discernment” (says “TheTimes”), biography of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, detailing the extraordinary rise and political brilliance of the world’s most powerful—and elusive—woman. A Pastor’s daughter raised in Soviet occupied East Germany, she sang in church and worked as a research scientist until the fall of the Berlin Wall. And then she began the career that in fifteen years carried her to Germany’s highest office and unofficial leader of the West. Kati Marton tells us how this unlikely odyssey by a famously private woman could happen. Come and bring guests.
