Promoting the transatlantic relationship between the United States and United Kingdom, Cunard Line hosted guests aboard the line’s flagship Queen Mary 2 in New York for a lecture given by celebrated author Barry Singer on his newly published book, Churchill Style: The Art of Being Winston Churchill.
Cunard Line’s master of Queen Mary 2, Captain Kevin Oprey and Amanda Bowman, president of non-profit organization The TransAtlantic Bridge, introduced Edwina Sandys, the granddaughter of Sir Winston Churchill who also attended and spoke to the group.
“Cunard is pleased to have collaborated with The TransAtlantic Bridge on this very special event, celebrating the enduring relationship between the United States and Great Britain, and honoring Sir Winston Churchill in particular,” said Peter Shanks, president of Cunard Line. “Churchill credited Cunard Line with ending WWII one year early, and we are proud to preserve our unique history with one of the world’s greatest leaders. In fact, we pay tribute to him on all of our ships with dedicated venues in his name.”
Singer’s new biography details Churchill’s private life and extravagant style outside the world of politics, featuring scores of never-before-published photographs, illustrations and documents from the Churchill family archives.
