Film Screening of Casablanca followed by a Presentation and Book Signing
Join us for a screening of the classic film Casablanca to celebrate the 75th anniversary of its release. Sip on Moroccan-themed drink specials while enjoying this memorable film, then join historian Meredith Hindley as she discusses Casablanca during wartime and its similarities and differences to the Casablanca that Humphrey Bogart's character, Rick, roamed. In addition, Hindley will discuss a few highlights from her new book Destination Casablanca: Exile, Espionage, and the Battle for North Africa in World War II. Jonathan W. Jordan, best-selling author of Brothers, Rivals, Victors, said of the book: “A fulcrum of history—wartime Casablanca—jumps to life in Meredith Hindley's masterful page-turner. Spies, jazz legends, generals, traitors, writers, war icons, and assassins light up a tale of high-stakes intrigue in one of the world's great exotic settings."
