An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.
Journalist John Avlon may be best known as a political analyst and anchor on CNN, but he’s also an accomplished author of such books as Wingnuts: Extremism in the Age of Obama and Washington’s Farewell: The Founding Father’s Warning to Future Generations. His newest work is Lincoln and the Fight for Peace, which Ken Burns calls “a stunning accomplishment, and an essential reminder that the Civil War — the most important event in our country’s history — is very much part of who we are as a people and a nation today.”
Avlon recently discussed Lincoln and the Fight for Peace with author/attorney Talmage Boston. Listen to the podcast here.
