Chapel Leadership Series Hosts Book's Author

VALLEY FORGE PA – Author and historian William “Larry” Kidder will be a featured speaker Thursday (Aug. 11, 2022) at 6 p.m. in Washington Memorial Chapel on Route 23, Valley Forge National Historical Park, as part of its “Lead Like George Leadership Forum” Series. Kidder will discuss his book, “Ten Crucial Days: Washington’s Vision for Victory Unfolds.”

Tickets cost $20 per person. Advance registration for the event is available online, here. Individuals who offer proof of their status as students will be admitted free.

The book addresses Washington’s run up to his crossing of the Delaware and ensuing victories in and around Trenton. It relies on primary source research, and is credited with expanding on what is now known about how Washington led his army in daring maneuvers that changed history.

Following the discussion, Kidder will sign copies of his book for those in attendance during a wine reception in the chapel’s Lafayette Room from 7:45-8:30 p.m.

The Leadership Forum Series is a history, leadership, and author events program that began earlier this year at the chapel. It examines challenges and decisions faced by the country’s founders during its revolutionary history. By analyzing their experiences, the program offers lessons that intended to guide business and personal life.
