On Tuesday, July 26th the HLAA-TC Book Club welcomed the author of our June/July book selection: Hugo Vickers. Mr. Vickers joined us via Zoom from England to talk with us about his book “Alice: Princess Andrew of Greece”
(2003). It was fun to get to talk to someone who has such incredible knowledge of British royalty and history and also was recruited by Prince Philip to write the biography of the prince’s mother, Princess Alice.
Some fun tidbits from the talk:
-In 1995 Hugo Vickers was contacted by Prince Philip’s personal secretary to write this biography on Princess Alice.
-Mr. Vickers tells us his opinion (when asked) on Netflix’s “The Crown.”
-Mr. Vickers also talked about modern day British royalty (Queen Elizabeth, Prince Harry and Megan Markle, Prince William and Princess Kate, etc).
If you would like to watch/read/listen to the talk please email HLAA-TC Social Media Specialist and book club coordinator Laura Hagemann at firstname.lastname@example.org
and she will send you a link to view the recording or read the transcript.
The next HLAA-TC Book Club and book selection is:
Tuesday, August 23, 2022 at 7:00pm (CST): “A Maiden’s Grave” by Jeffrey Deaver (Fiction/Mystery).
