The REAL King’s Speech
Posted by: Mary Burkey

Patrons want more after watching the movie? Here’s a video of a REAL 1938 speech by King George VI, courtesy of Open Culture and the British Pathe historical archive. And don’t forget to order the Tantor audiobook of The King’s Speech, written by London Sunday Times journalist Peter Conradi and Mark Logue—grandson of Lionel Logue, whose recently discovered diaries are the true story behind the movie. Simon Vance, Booklist’s Voice of Choice, narrates the title which will be available Feb. 28th.
