Nancy Horan in Conversation with Therese Fowler

June 28, 2023@7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Nancy Horan, author of the million-copy New York Times bestseller Loving Frank, returns with her new book The House of Lincoln, a sweeping historical novel, which tells the story of Abraham Lincoln’s ascendance from rumpled lawyer to U.S. president to the Great Emancipator through the eyes of a young asylum-seeker who arrives in Lincoln’s home of Springfield from Madeira, Portugal.

Join Nancy Horan and Therese Fowler as they discuss The House of Lincoln, which was published June 6. This program will be presented on Zoom.


Nancy Horan’s previous books include Loving Frank (2007), which chronicles a little-known chapter in the life of legendary American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and his client, Mamah Cheney; and Under the Wide and Starry Sky (2014), which explores the unlikely relationship of Robert Louis Stevenson and his spirited American wife, Fanny Van de Grift Stevenson.  A native Midwesterner, Nancy Horan was a Chicago journalist before turning to fiction writing. She now lives with her husband on an island in Puget Sound.
