Biographer Richard Brookhiser has turned his eye to perhaps the Founding Fathers’ greatest pupil—Abraham Lincoln. Brookhiser’s latest book, Founders’ Son: A Life of Abraham Lincoln, follows Lincoln from his humble origins in Kentucky to his assassination in Washington, D.C., from lawyer to congressman to president, who returned time and time again to the words and vision of the Founders. A special book signing opportunity with Brookhiser will follow the program.
