Behind the Book: Texas Edition with S.C. Gwynne
Wednesday, November 15, 2023
To kick off the new Behind the Book: Texas Edition series, join us in welcoming bestselling author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist Empire of the Summer Moon, S.C. Gwynne!
His Majesty's Airship, Mr. Gwynne's latest book, is the tragic story of the British airship R101—which went down in a spectacular hydrogen-fueled fireball in 1930, killing more people than died in the Hindenburg disaster seven years later and has been largely forgotten.
About the Author
S.C. Gwynne is the author of His Majesty’s Airship, Hymns of the Republic, and the New York Times bestsellers Rebel Yell and Empire of the Summer Moon, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award. He spent most of his career as a journalist, including stints with Time as bureau chief, national correspondent, and senior editor, and with Texas Monthly as executive editor. He lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife.
