Lincoln Bicentennial: Local Lectures

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

Look forward to local Lincoln events soon near our Springfield IL lodging.


On February 8th and 9th at the Abraham Lincoln Library & Museum, enjoy a presentation by Columbia University historian Erik Foner, who has recently finished a book project as editor of esteemed essays on Lincoln. The book is called Our Lincoln: New Perspectives on Lincoln and His World. Foner will be presenting his thoughts on the 16th president during the lecture: “Reflecting on Lincoln”. The event will begin at noon in the library multi-purpose room.

Later in the day there is a panel discussion lead by the owner of the Abraham Lincoln bookshop Dan Weinberg. All the way from Chicago, he is going to be joined by some of the other leading Lincoln collectors in the nation. The panel, entitled “Collecting Lincoln”, will start at 2 p.m. This will be an excellent chance for visitors to learn more about Lincolnland. These events require reservations, so make sure to call the museum at: 217-558-8934
