NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
Abraham Lincoln is considered the benchmark of Presidential integrity, honesty, character. But he was human.
This one-of-a-kind webinar will focus on lesser-known facts about Abraham Lincoln. — From his life as a child on a Kentucky farm, rescuing animals and being rescued by one himself — to the lessons he learned after a rascally mistake landed him in a duel as a budding lawyer — and his presidential days as a man rooted deeply in his agricultural past—young readers will see the evolution of Lincoln’s character.
Authors Shari Swanson (HONEY, THE DOG WHO SAVED ABE LINCOLN), Donna Janell Bowman (ABRAHAM LINCOLN’S DUELING WORDS), and Peggy Thomas (LINCOLN CLEARS A PATH), will bring Abraham Lincoln to life as a complex, compassionate, and passionately curious man with stories you may have never heard before.
The one-hour Virtual Author Visit will allow each author to discuss her book and how it reflects Lincoln’s character. We will explore the research and writing behind each story and offer engaging writing lessons to inspire creativity and connect to curriculum goals. A pdf of the writing lessons will be available with registration.
The webinar is suitable for school-age children, Lincoln fans, teachers, and writers.
