H. W. Brands, author of THE ZEALOT AND THE EMANCIPATOR (Doubleday), will discuss his book about John Brown and Abraham Lincoln in conversation with GPB’s Virginia Prescott at a virtual event hosted by the Atlanta History Center via Zoom on Thursday, October 22 at 7:00 pm (ET).

Bestselling historian H. W. Brands narrates the epic struggle over slavery as embodied by John Brown and Abraham Lincoln—two men moved to radically different acts to confront our nation’s gravest sin. THE ZEALOT AND THE EMANCIPATOR is page-turning account of how two American giants shaped the war for freedom.

Brands holds the Jack S. Blanton Sr. Chair in History at the University of Texas at Austin. A New York Times bestselling author, he was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in biography for The First American and Traitor to His Class.
