EVENT DETAILS

Since her introduction in 1941, Wonder Woman has remained the most popular female superhero of all time, but the history behind her creation has remained largely unknown. American History Book Prize winner Jill Lepore uncovers the origin of one of the world’s most iconic superheroes and how it holds within it a fascinating family story, as well as a crucial connection to 20th-century feminism.

Jill Lepore, the award-winning author of The Secret History of Wonder Woman, is David Woods Kemper ’41 Professor of American History at Harvard University and a staff writer at The New Yorker
