Fact vs. Fiction: Lincoln and Kennedy

February 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Do you know about all the eerie parallels between Abraham Lincoln and John Kennedy? Elected 100 years apart, replaced by men named Johnson, the list goes on — except the “parallels” are routine coincidences, exaggerations, or outright lies. Join our experts for a fun look at what’s fact and what’s fiction.

The event features Dr. Samuel Wheeler, the Illinois State Historian, and John T. Shaw, author of two books on President Kennedy. Shaw will sign copies of his books at 6, then the presentation begins at 6:30.
