7:00 pm: Moments in Lincoln's Life 

The Friends of the Carlock Library present freelance writer and historical researcher Tom Emery speaking about "Moment's in Lincoln's Life." 

This one-hour program is based on a compilation of articles on some of the lesser-known experiences of the sixteenth President, with fresh looks on the more famous episodes. The program will cover Lincoln’s pre-presidential life, including his early romances, his work as a surveyor and postmaster, first political campaigns and some of his notable friendships. Other topics will include Lincoln's law career, how he celebrated Christmas and holiday seasons, and little-known facts about the assassination, as well as a look at Lincoln's descendants.
