Author and historian William Kuhn discusses his recently published satirical war novel, a lighthearted work of fiction that recounts Prince Harry’s wartime experiences in Afghanistan. A former historian in the Royal Archives at Windsor Castle, Kuhn will share personal anecdotes, including his impressions of a Christmas party at Buckingham Palace.
William Kuhn is an author and historian. His first novel "Mrs Queen Takes the Train" was a national bestseller and has been optioned by the Weinstein Company for a film. He is also the author of "Reading Jackie: Her Autobiography in Books," a behind-the-scenes look at Jackie Kennedy Onassis at work as an editor at Viking and Doubleday based on archives and interviews with her colleagues. "Prince Harry Boy to Man" is his second novel.

The Athenæum's five galleried floors overlook the peaceful Granary Burying Ground, and, as Gamaliel Bradford wrote in 1931, "it is safe to say that [no library] anywhere has more an atmosphere of its own, that none is more conducive to intellectual aspiration and spiritual peace." The building was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1966.
