Abe Lincoln, Power of Words Talk, Free

Where
Hughes Main Library, 25 Heritage Green Pl, Greenville, SC 29615 [ Map ]
Description
Join an audience that loves talking back to history to discuss the legacy of Abraham Lincoln with the author of The Age of Lincoln. Dr. Vernon Burton is a prolific author, an eminent Lincoln scholar – and, like Lincoln tells a great story.

For Dr. Burton, Southern history is personal. He grew up in Ninety-Six and graduated from Furman University. He is Clemson University Creativity Professor of Humanities, Professor of History, Sociology, and Computer Science and Director of the Clemson CyberInstitute.
Dr. Burton's The Age of Lincoln (2007) won the Chicago Tribune Heartland Literary Award for Nonfiction and was selected for Book of the Month Club, History Book Club, and Military Book Club. He is also the author of The Essential Lincoln, Speeches and Correspondence as well as eight other books on Southern History.

"If the Civil War era was America's Iliad," then historian Orville Vernon Burton is our latest Homer."
