HPL's History Program - Abe Lincoln in the 21st Century

On Sunday, February 8, 2009 at 3pm in the main auditorium, Huntington Public Library will celebrate one of America's greatest president's 200th birthday! We welcome David Houston, the popular and versatile actor, in this original portrait of our most literary president, Abraham Lincoln. The script is adapted from Lincoln's writings and speeches - which reveal a witty and wise statesman who speaks to us as if he lives today and understands our most pressing, confusing, and amusing concerns. You will be touched and enlightened by what you hear.

In addition to this wonderful program, visit the Abraham Lincoln display on the main floor in the periodical room. We will showcase unique items from the Mary Talmage Local History Collection. It will be on display throughout the month of February.

If you have a question regarding the program or exhibit, feel free to call the Adult Reference Desk at 631-427-5165 x251.
