Lincoln In Private

Show Info

This program is live on the book shop’s Facebook page. The Live Stream takes place on the day the book is released.

A deeply private man, shut off even to those who worked closely with him, Abraham Lincoln often captured €œhis best thoughts,€ as he called them, in short notes to himself. He would work out his personal stances on the biggest issues of the day, never expecting anyone to see these frank, unpolished pieces of writing, which he’d then keep close at hand, in desk drawers and even in his top hat. The profound importance of these notes has been overlooked, because the originals are scattered across several different archives and have never before been brought together and examined as a coherent whole.

These are notes Lincoln never expected anyone to read, put into context by a writer who has spent his career studying Lincoln’s life and words. The result is a rare glimpse into the mind and soul of one of our nation’s most important figures. Scroll down to watch the program.
