Erika Holst, curator of decorative arts and history at the Illinois State Museum will speak about the connections Abraham Lincoln has to several historic buildings within the 42-county Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area, all of which are open to the public! Each site links today’s visitors with a place Lincoln lived, a home of a Lincoln friend or colleague, or a spot that illuminates Lincoln’s era and legacy in central Illinois. Based on Erika Holst's book of the same name, recently released by SIU Press, the author will sign books after the talk. FREE. For more info: (217) 586-2612 or bgarvey@ccfpd.org
