An evening with best-selling author William Martin

Monday, February 24, 2020 29 Sh'vat 5780

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Lincoln and Liberty

Congregation B’nai Torah will welcome New York Times best-selling author William Martin on Monday, February 24, 2020, at 7 p.m. to speak on “Lincoln and Liberty” — with a book signing to follow.

Through a series of vivid slides, including rare holdings from the Library of Congress, Mr. Martin will trace the arc of Lincoln's presidency from constitutional lawyer to moral leader.

Mr. Martin has written eleven novels including Back Bay, Cape Cod, and The Lincoln Letter. He has been awarded the New England Book Award and the Samuel Eliot Morison Award. In addition to writing novels, Martin is the author of a PBS documentary, book reviews, magazine articles, and more.

The Providence Journal, reviewing Bound for Gold, calls him the “king of the historical thriller.” Doris Kearns Goodwin wrote of The Lincoln Letter, "I am a huge William Martin fan, but this book is my absolute favorite.”
