Lincoln Club Annual Dinner – February 8, 2024

Celebrate the Birthday of our sixteenth President at the Annual Black Tie Dinner with guest speaker Edward Achorn

Edward Achorn is the recipient of the 2023 Harold Holzer Lincoln Forum Book Award for The Lincoln Miracle: Inside the Republican Convention that Changed History (Grove Atlantic, 2023). The speaker at our 2022 Annual Dinner, Roger Lowenstein, wrote in the Wall Street Journal that Achorn “has written a provocative addition to the canon.” Achorn’s previous book, Every Drop of Blood: The Momentous Second Inauguration of Abraham Lincoln, also received critical success and was named an Amazon Book of the Month. He is the author of two baseball histories: Fifty-Nine in ’84: Old Hoss Radbourn, Barehanded Baseball and the Greatest Season a Pitcher Ever Had and The Summer of Beer and Whiskey: How Brewers, Barkeeps, Rowdies, Immigrants, and a Wild Pennant Fight Made Baseball America’s Game. Achorn, a Pulitzer Prize finalist for Commentary and winner of the Yankee Quill Award, is a past editorial page editor of The Providence Journal (Rhode Island).
