Catching John Wilkes Booth

Listen to our members’ only podcast.

Dear Book Club members,

After a series of delays (see: Indictment Watch), we finally conclude our summer thriller series with James Swanson’s Manhunt: The 12-day Hunt for Lincoln’s Killer. Sarah summons Civil War buff David French to discuss the surprising––and breathtaking––historiography of the Lincoln assassination and the pursuit to catch the conspirators.

Join the conversation in the comments section to share your thoughts about Swanson’s page-turner and your suggestions for the coming months!
