[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.

HardwareThe 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.
