The Lincoln Group of DC is pleased to welcome David J. Kent, author of Lincoln: The Man Who Saved America, as our December 5, 2017 speaker. His book provides a unique view of Abraham Lincoln’s life in a format that blends the best of vivid writing with a graphical novel feel, complete with many spectacular photos, cartoons, and drawings. Kent will discuss how the book helps Lincoln scholars reach out to a wider audience. The discussion will include how the Lincoln Group can help communicate lessons from Lincoln to a modern populace that often seems to have forgotten the history of our nation’s most fiery trial.
