POSTPONED: Winston Churchill and "Their Finest Hour" 75 years later Presentation by Dr. Karen Halbersleben

Please note the Winston Churchill presentation has been postponed until August due to a family emergency that has come up. If you have registered for the presentation we will be moving your reservation to the August (likely the 12th or 13th) date. If you will be needing a refund instead please let us know. We are sorry for the inconvenience. 218-387-3411 or if you have questions.


Cook County Higher Education is honored to feature Dr. Karen Halbersleben, who will present “Winston Churchill: the Man and the Myth” on Thursday, June 18th, from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at Cook County Higher Education. This talk is a reprise of the talk Karen gave three years ago (it does not seem that long ago). If you missed that event, you will want to attend this one.  If you attended in 2012, you will want to listen again!  There is a $10 fee to attend with RSVP and $15 dollars at the door!  Early registration is strongly recommended to assure you have a place. We are limiting the seating to avoid overheating the room.

"We shall never surrender."  "Their finest hour...". The words and the leadership of Winston Churchill continue to fascinate Americans 50 years after his death, and June 18th, 2015 is the 75th anniversary of Churchill’s “Finest Hour” speech.
