Home Library Programs Abraham Lincoln in the American Mind

Abraham Lincoln in the American Mind

Join local author Mike Lunsford for a discussion about America’s 16th President, Abraham Lincoln, on Thursday, May 3 at 6:30 CST at Marshall Public Library.  Lunsford was in the inaugural class of the Abraham Lincoln Teacher’s Fellowship in Springfield in 2006, holds a MS degree from Indiana State University in United States History, and has read extensively about Lincoln.  He will discuss what he feels are misconceptions about Lincoln today, share a reading list, and read two stories he’s published about Lincoln.  Lunsford will also make his books available for signing and sale, including his latest, Field Notes and Other Stories (Shade Tree Press, 2017).
