"Lincoln in the Bardo"
Visit our Athens Branch to pick up a copy of Lincoln in the Bardo as part of our Book-of-the-Month Book Club!
President Lincoln's beloved son, Willie, dies and is laid to rest in a Georgetown cemetery. Lincoln returns to the crypt several times to hold his boy's body. From that seed of historical truth, George Saunders spins an unforgettable story of familial love and loss that breaks free of its realistic, historical framework.
Adults can check out a copy of the book, and take a list of discussion questions to read over and reflect on after reading the novel. Call the Athens Branch at 715-257-7292 to make an appointment for curbside pickup or for a library visit.
