About this Item
- Lincoln, the Presidency and the Press: National Book Festival 2020
- Harold Holzer, "The Presidents vs. the Press: The Endless Battle between the White House and the Media from the Founding Fathers to Fake News" (Dutton), appears in conversation with Ted Widmer, "Lincoln on the Verge: Thirteen Days to Washington" (Simon & Schuster). Award-winning historian Holzer offers an account of American presidents' attacks on our freedom of the press--from George Washington to Donald Trump--while American historian and librarian Widmer tells of Lincoln, during the deepest crisis in American history, boarding a train for his inauguration in Washington even as Southerners vowed to prevent his presidency. Moderated by biographer and executive director of the Leon Levy Center for Biography, Kai Bird.
