SLCL Presents David S. Reynolds

Monday, October 18th, 7pm CST
St. Louis County Library, HEC Media, and Left Bank Books present David S. Reynolds, "Abe: Abraham Lincoln in His Times".
 
In conversation with Renowned Historian HW Brands.
 
 
From one of the great historians of nineteenth-century America, “Abe” is a revelatory biography that brings Lincoln to life within his turbulent age. From New England Puritan stock on his father's side and Virginia Cavalier gentry on his mother's, Lincoln was linked by blood to the central conflict of the age. As a politician, he moved too slowly for some and too swiftly for many, but he always pushed toward justice while keeping the whole nation in mind. “Abe” culminates, of course, in the Civil War, the defining test of Lincoln and his beloved country. Reynolds shows us the extraordinary range of cultural knowledge Lincoln drew from as he shaped a vision of true union.
