Lincoln Books Get Unexpected Boost

February 12, 2009 marks the 200th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth and a raft of new Lincoln books are being published this fall, to tie in with the upcoming celebrations.

Nobody could have anticipated an even more powerful publicity push; a President-elect with a Lincoln fascination. Yesterday, he was photographed by the AP, carrying the recently-released Lincoln: The Biography of a Writer by Fred Kaplan. (Thanks to our friends at Shelf Awareness for spotting it).

The book has been reviewed widely:

Most libraries own the hardcover, but few have the audio.
