Author James Lander signs Lincoln & Darwin book at Present Tense

posted by Billie Owens in events, Present Tense.

Author James Lander will be at Present Tense bookstore in Batavia at 5 o'clock today signing copies of his latest book "Lincoln & Darwin: Shared Visions of Race, Science and Religion."

Here's what historian and author James M. McPherson says about those two great men and Lander: "Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln had more in common that their birth on the same day. Both abhorred slavery, and their positions on race shared significant similarities. This stimulating book offers new insights on these two 19th Century giants whose legacy still shapes our world today."

McPherson wrote the book "Tried by War: Abraham Lincoln as Commander in Chief."
