Nelson Mandela’s biographer speaking at Wellesley Free Library
January 23, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Charlene Smith, the authorized biographer of Nelson Mandela, and a political journalist who has covered the White House, politics, and economics on four continents, will discuss how “the trappings of power deceive us, endowing the possessors with a quality larger than life.” Smith will posit that any sort of power, whether in politics, at work, or even within a family can cause us to become obstinate bullies who take no counsel and cause misery. Charlene Smith is a multi-award winning journalist, documentary film maker, editor, broadcaster, and the author of 14 books.
This event is free and open to the public.
WHEN: Sunday, January 27, 2019
WHERE: Wakelin Room, Wellesley Free Library, 530 Washington St.
