Local author Sean T. Smith’s latest novel, Abraham’s Tears, takes current-day political turmoil a decade into the future, where Texas has started a secession and America’s polarization is on the verge of inciting a second Civil War. Join us for the fascinating discussion on First Coast Connect from our partners at TVJax after the jump!
First Coast Connect’s Melissa Ross interviews the author on his thoughts about the national political climate and how likely this fictional future could become plausible in real life. Smith discusses his love for Abraham Lincoln, a petition for secession that gained some traction in Texas several years ago, and the far-reaching effects of gun rights’ battles and popular anti-government stances.
