This event took place on October 21st, 2020. You can find a recording of the event on our YouTube Channel.

The Harvard Club of Chicago is partnering with Harvard GlobalWE to bring our members this exclusive, online event with author Catherine Katz. Katz will be discussing her book The Daughters of Yalta, the untold story of the three intelligent and glamorous young women who accompanied their famous fathers (Churchill, Roosevelt and Harriman) to the Yalta Conference in February 1945, and of the conference’s fateful reverberations in the waning days of World War II. 


About the Author, Catherine Katz: Catherine Grace Katz is a writer and historian from Chicago. She graduated from Harvard in 2013 with a BA in History and received her MPhil in Modern European History from Christ’s College, University of Cambridge in 2014, where she wrote her dissertation on the origins of modern counterintelligence practices. After graduating, Catherine worked in finance in New York City before a very fortuitous visit to the book store in the lobby of her office in Manhattan led her to return to history and writing. She is currently pursuing her JD at Harvard Law School. The Daughters of Yalta is her first book.
