Guy Fraker, author of "Guidebook to Lincoln's Eighth Judicial Circuit," will present pictures from his book on Saturday, Nov. 4 at 1:30 p.m. at the Historic Mt. Pulaski Courthouse.

The book encourages people to travel the fourteen counties which were on the circuit in search of historic sites. Maps and directions are included along with about 90 pictures. Books will be available for sale. Fraker will be happy to sign them.

Guy S. Fraker is a retired attorney from Bloomington. In his earlier book, "Lincoln's Ladder to the Presidency: the Eight Judicial Circuit," Fraker asserts that travel around the circuit helped Lincoln get elected president.

Many tour groups organized by Fraker have opened the historic treasures of Logan and the thirteen other counties to visitors from many places.

Everyone is welcome.
