Jerome Charyn - I Am Abraham: A Novel of Lincoln and the Civil War ♦

Wednesday, February 12, 2014 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Charyn, the prolific and innovative author of Johnny One-Eye and The Secret Life of Emily Dickinson, has cast his most recent work of fiction as Lincoln’s autobiography. As the mortally wounded president reflects on his life, he recounts the iconic events—the spare upbringing, prairie law practice, debates, war—from a personal perspective, filtered not through legend, but through the psyche of a talented and often depressed man.
