Your Friend Forever, A. Lincoln:
The Enduring Friendship of Abraham Lincoln and Joshua Speed
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Charles B. Strozier will be the guest speaker at our dinner meeting on Monday, April 17, where he will speak on his book, Your Friend Forever, A. Lincoln, a 2017 Lincoln Prize Finalist.
The first in-depth exploration of the closest friendship in Lincoln's life, Dr. Strozier analyzes Lincoln's relationship with Joshua Speed and how each man supported the other during this pivotal time in Lincoln's life, answering important questions about his early years. This will be an extremely enlightening evening as we learn more about Lincoln's life as he first arrived in Springfield, and will provide significant depth to our overall understanding of Abraham Lincoln!
Dr. Strozier is a historian and psychoanalyst, and is a professor of history at John Jay College and the Graduate Center, CUNY, and faculty, training, and supervising analyst at TRISP in New York City. He's also author of Lincoln's Quest for Union: Public and Private Meanings (1982).
