[April 27, 2010]
The Lincoln Heritage Museum at Lincoln
College will host a book signing on May 5 to accompany the release
of "A Respect for the Office: Letters From the Presidents." The
authors are Tara Hennessy, who has taught English courses at Lincoln
College, and Ron Keller, associate professor of history and director
of the Lincoln Heritage Museum.
The book has been released by popular demand. For years many
visitors to the museum have marveled at the very rare collection of
letters and documents on display of every United States president
and many of the first ladies, and have repeatedly requested to buy
copies of the letters. This extraordinary collection is now compiled
in this book, which includes amazing and some little-known facts
about the lives of the presidents and the letters that they have
written. From the lives and the letters of the presidents and first
ladies, readers will gain new perspectives on the men and women who
have lived in the White House.
The authors will share their insights on the presidents and will
sign copies of the book at the museum on May 5 from 7 to 9 p.m.
Admission is free.
The book is in paperback form and sells for $14.95. All proceeds
from book sales will benefit the Lincoln Heritage Museum.
