February 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This event is presented by the National Constitution Center
Join Michael Gerhardt, Burton Craige Distinguished Professor of Jurisprudence at the University of North Carolina School of Law and scholar in residence at the National Constitution Center, to celebrate the launch of his latest book, Lincoln’s Mentors: The Education of a Leader—an examination of how Abraham Lincoln mastered the art of leadership, and how five men mentored an obscure lawyer with no executive experience to become one of America’s greatest presidents. Gerhardt will be joined by leading historians H.W. Brands, professor of history and Jack S. Blanton Sr. Chair in History at the University of Texas at Austin and author of the new book The Zealot and the Emancipator: John Brown, Abraham Lincoln, and the Struggle for American Freedom, and Judith Giesberg, professor of history at Villanova University and director of the Last Seen Project, in conversation moderated by Jeffrey Rosen.
