Renowned author Artemis Cooper lectures about Patrick Leigh Fermor, the British author, scholar, soldier and polyglot who played a prominent role behind the lines in the Cretan resistance during World War II. He was widely regarded as Britain’s greatest living travel writer during his lifetime, based on books such as A Time of Gifts (1977). UCLA has recently signed a memorandum of understanding to partner with the Benaki Museum in program scheduling at the Patrick Leigh Fermor House in Kardamyli, Mani, Greece.

The lecture is supported by the Peter J. and Caroline B. Caloyeras Endowment for the Arts and is co-sponsored by the British Consulate General in Los Angeles and the Greek Consulate General in Los Angeles.
