New York Times Notable Book author Louis Bayard will read from Courting Mr. Lincoln. “This glorious novel, big-hearted and clear-eyed, features the most uncanny incarnation of our sixteenth president since Daniel Day-Lewis strode onscreen in Lincoln. If you love Jane Austen, or Hamilton, or fiction–of any era–that transports and transforms in equal measure, look no further . . . as good as storytelling gets."—A.J. Finn

Bayard has been shortlisted for both the Edgar and Dagger awards for his historical thrillers, which include The Pale Blue Eye and the bestselling Mr. Timothy, which was a Paul’s Book Club pick. His most recent novel was the critically acclaimed young-adult title Lucky Strikes. He lives in Washington, DC, and teaches at George Washington University.
