A Patriotic Pick: February 2020

Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by Kathy Cannon Wiechman, winner of 2015’s inaugural Grateful American™ Book Prize (for Like a River: A Civil War Novel).

Abraham Lincoln by Carl Sandburg. The Pulitzer Prize-winning poet’s masterful, multi-volume chronicle of our 16th (and possibly greatest) president deserves a prominent place on every serious reader’s shelf.


Patriotic Picks is a monthly feature in partnership with the Washington Independent Review of Books.
