Carl Sandburg’s Lincoln: A Living Portrait

April 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Why should Abraham Lincoln matter to you? Picture yourself sitting next to Carl Sandburg in his cozy study, among his books and papers, as he tells you his stories about why Lincoln still matters today. Sandburg said his biography of Lincoln “returned him to the common people”. Hear why Lincoln’s words can revive a “Lincoln-hearted” people to reclaim the American promise.

Steve Duchrow is a spoken word performer and musician who has performed the works of Prairie Poets, Carl Sandburg and Vachel Lindsay, at theatre fringe festivals, the Illinois State Library, historic history sites, fairs and festivals.

This program is free and open to all. No registration is required.
