Author of Catherine the Great Bio to Speak in Louisville

Pulitizer Prize winning author Robert Massie is coming to Louisville this week to talk about his latest work, a highly acclaimed biography of  Catherine The Great, who was empress of Russia for 34 years.   

The 82 year old Massie, a native of Lexington, Kentucky,  has devoted most of his career to writing about Russian royalty

Robert Massie will speak Thursday evening at 7:00 at the main Louisville Free Public Library.

All the tickets have been distributed, but the library says there may be some standby seats available that evening.
