SPECIAL MEMBERS BOOK NIGHT!

The Lincoln Group of DC is pleased to present a special members book night featuring three of the Lincoln Group’s newest authors.

David J. Kent – Lincoln: The Man Who Saved America: A unique view of Abraham Lincoln’s life in a format that blends the best of vivid writing with a graphical novel feel, complete with many spectacular photos, cartoons, and drawings. David J. Kent is a lifelong independent Abraham Lincoln researcher and a career scientist. He is currently the Vice-President of Programs for the Lincoln Group of the District of Columbia and an active participate in the Lincoln Group’s monthly book discussion group, contributes articles to the Lincolnian newsletter, writes a quarterly Lincoln book review column, and manages the group’s social communications network.

Elizabeth Smith Brownstein – Lincoln’s Other White House: The Untold Story of the Man and His Presidency: Lincoln and his family spent a quarter of his presidency at the Soldier’s Home in what is now known as the Lincoln Cottage. But until the National Trust for Historic Preservation began restoring the cottage, little had been done to explore this missing
link in Lincoln’s life. Elizabeth Smith Brownstein fills this gap using diaries, letters, and eyewitness accounts to provide unusual perspectives on Lincoln’s relationships, the evolution of Lincoln’s image, insights into the Lincoln marriage, and more. Elizabeth is currently Recording Secretary and a long-time member of the Lincoln Group.

Carl Adams – Nance: Trials of the First Slave Freed by Abraham Lincoln: This Young Adult book is based on sworn and witnessed court records, it's the true story of the three
Supreme Court trials of the first slave freed by a young lawyer, Abraham Lincoln in Illinois in 1841. Her name was Nance Legins-Costley, and her struggles began as a teenager. She actively worked for 15 years to win her freedom, but needed Lincoln to make it legal. This is the only book about the slave who started Lincoln on the path that changed American History and the Constitution. Carl is an Illinois native and a recently active member of the Lincoln Group of DC.

All three authors will sign copies of their books before and after the dinner.
