Springfield’s Paper Tells of Henry Brown, Upcoming Book Signing

The south portico of the White House, as seen in Springfield’s Lincoln Museum.

When you walk into the Plaza at the entrance of the Abraham Lincoln Museum, you will see a log cabin to your left, while straight ahead is a replica of the south portico of the White House–two very different homes for our sixteenth president. Standing in the middle of the rotunda are five life-like wax figures of Abe Lincoln and his family in 1861. It is a stunning entryway to the nineteenth-century life of perhaps our greatest president.

The Lincoln Museum is one of my favorite museums–a must-see for anyone traveling through central Illinois. So I am greatly honored to be doing a book signing for The Disappearing Man in the museum store on Saturday, March 19, from noon until 2 p.m. Springfield’s State Journal-Register has run a nice article on my book and the event. You can check it out here at the State Journal-Register.
