Author Erik Larson returns with The Demon of Unrest, a saga of hubris, heartbreak, and heroism at the dawn of the Civil War. The suspense-filled narrative illuminates the pivotal five months between the election of Abraham Lincoln and the start of the Civil War - a slow-burning crisis that finally tore a deeply divided nation in two.

Larson offers a gripping account of these chaotic months. Drawing on diaries, secret communiques, slave ledgers, and plantation records, he tells a political horror story that captures the forces that led America to the brink - a dark reminder that we often don’t see a cataclysm coming until it’s too late.

Larson will be in conversation with JK Nickell from Texas Monthly.
