We are excited to announce that Sidney Blumenthal has won our 2017 Award of Achievement for his work, Wrestling With His Angel: The Political Life of Abraham Lincoln Vol. II, 1849-1856. We will present him with his award and he will speak at our upcoming dinner meeting on Thursday, February 15, 2018.
To understand Lincoln, one must understand the politics of his time and Mr. Blumenthal has given us one of the best studies on Lincoln, the master politician, during this vital time of his life. This is the second of what will be a four-volume political biography (A Self-Made Man was published in 2016).
Sidney Blumenthal is the former assistant and senior advisor to President Bill Clinton and senior advisor to Hillary Clinton. He has been a national staff reporter for The Washington Post and Washington editor and writer for The New Yorker.
We look forward to seeing you on February 15th for what promises to be a most exciting and memorable evening!
