9148GJTMjFL

Stephen Harrigan’s “A Friend of Mr. Lincoln” is the 2016 Mayor’s Book Club title.

The book club is an annual citywide reading campaign that aims to develop a community experience through reading and discussion.

Harrigan’s novel explores the early days of Abraham Lincoln, before his eventual marriage to Mary Todd, and his exploits riding the circuit in Illinois, before his political ascendancy.

The campaign is in conjunction of Mayor Steve Adler’s office and the Austin Public Library Friends Foundation.
