Authors Live!: Stephen Harrigan
Stephen Harrigan gives us a galvanizing portrait of Abraham Lincoln during the early Springfield years, a critical period of his life when he risked his sanity and his ethics to search for the great destiny he believed to be his. Historically accurate, rich in character, A Friend of Mr. Lincoln's reveals the hopes and ambitions of a youthful manhood.
Stephen Harrigan is the author of nine previous books including the New York Times bestseller The Gates of the Alamo. He is also a writer-at-large for Texas Monthly and a screenwriter who has written many movies for television. He lives in Austin.
