Adam Goodheart, historian, essayist, and journalist, will talk about his latest book 1861 The Civil War Awakening. Taking us from the corridors of the White House to the slums of Manhattan: from the mouth of the Chesapeake to the deserts of Nevada; from Boston Common to Alcatraz Island; Goodheart will vividly evoke the Union at this moment of ultimate crisis and decision.
Goodheart will speak for approximately 20 minutes, followed by a 20-minute question-and-answer session with the audience to be moderated by Vanderbilt Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos. Lecture and moderated question and answer session, 5:30-6:10 p.m., Central Library Community Room. Reception and book signing, 4:30-5:30 p.m., Central Library Lobby.
