Lincoln Club of Delaware Book Discussions
Date TBD (late spring or early summer 2023) – And There Was Light: Abraham Lincoln and the American Struggle, by Jon Meacham (PenguinRandom House, 2022).
“This illuminating new portrait gives us a very human Lincoln—an imperfect man whose moral antislavery commitment, essential to the story of justice in America, began as he grew up in an antislavery Baptist community; who insisted that slavery was a moral evil; and who sought, as he put it, to do right as God gave him to see the right. … In a nation shaped by the courage of the enslaved of the era and by the brave witness of Black Americans, Lincoln’s story illustrates the ways and means of politics in a democracy, the roots and durability of racism, and the capacity of conscience to shape events.” jonmeacham.com
