Looking At Lincoln In A Biographical Novel

“Old Abe” cover

The last five years of Abraham Lincoln’s life were the most cataclysmic in American history.

A new biographical novel by John Cribb - titled, “Old Abe” - follows the journey of 16th President from the 1860 election through the Civil War to his assassination.


Next Tuesday at 6 PM, on Zoom and Facebook, John will be the speaker for the virtual South Bound Lecture Series by Southern Lit Alliance.

I spoke with him - and with Lynda LeVan, executive director of Southern Lit Alliance.



Ray is the host and producer of Scenic Roots, Mondays - Thursdays at 3 PM on WUTC.
