Talk by James B. Conroy, author of Lincoln’s White House
7:00 PM at 10 Governors Avenue

Civil War Author James Conroy has written the definitive book to date on life in the Lincoln White House and was recently awarded the 2017 Gilder Lehrman Lincoln Prize to share with Douglas R. Egerton. Using material from those who lived there and visited, from servants to statesmen, at a time of high stakes and high anxiety, Conroy provides an intriguing and dramatic picture of the time and place of Abraham Lincoln. A Lincoln scholar has called the book: “gripping, atmospheric, and at times spellbinding.” Join us for this fascinating view of the White House during the Civil War.
