Lincoln in the Bardo, a New York Times Bestseller and winner of the Man Booker Prize Award, will be the subject of a lecture & book discussion facilitated by popular literary scholar Mark Scarbrough.
The devastatingly moving first novel from the author of Tenth of December: a moving and original father-son story featuring none other than Abraham Lincoln, as well as an unforgettable cast of supporting characters, living and dead, historical and invented.
“Mesmerizing . . . Dantesque . . . A haunting American ballad.” – Publishers Weekly
“Exhilarating . . . Ruthless and relentless in its evocation not only of Lincoln and his quandary, but also of the tenuous existential state shared by all of us.” – Kirkus Reviews
Copies of the book are available at the circulation desk.
