Nancy Horan, author of bestselling novels “Loving Frank” and “Wide and Starry Sky” returns to Eagle Harbor Book Co. to discuss her highly anticipated new novel, “The House of Lincoln.”
This evening with Nancy is not to be missed. Nancy is considered a master of the historical fiction genre and her previous works have achieved lasting acclaim. On the inspiration that guides her novels, Nancy references a famous quote by Robert Louis Stevenson: ""Everybody, soon or late, sits down to a banquet of consequences.' I am interested in how my characters arrive at the banquet, and how they deal with the results of their choices." The banquet of consequences is well attended in The House of Lincoln as three 1860s Springfield, Illinois families -- a free Black American family; a Portuguese immigrant family, and the Lincoln family itself -- become increasingly intertwined as slavery becomes a national crisis.
Join us as Nancy shares how she crafts a historical novel and sits her characters at the banquet of consequences. RSVP now to ensure your place at this event!
