The Hay-Adams Author Series returns with a lunch and a literary discussion as New York Times bestselling author Candice Millard shares insights and excerpts from her exhilarating new book, River of the Gods: Genius, Courage, and Betrayal in the Search for the Source of the Nile. The book, which tells the harrowing story of one of the great feats of exploration of all time and its complicated legacy, will have just hit shelves days before the event. Politics and Prose will be on hand to ensure guests can purchase a copy.

Formerly a DC resident, Ms. Millard is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The River of Doubt and Destiny of the Republic. Her book Hero of the Empire was named Amazon’s number-one history book of 2016. She lives in Kansas City with her husband and three children.
