Bookmarks: A Book Club for Grades 7 & up - Cumming Library - October 23rd at 1:00 p.m.

Lincoln’s Last Days by Bill O’Reilly

Even though I knew what was going to happen, I still found myself quickly turning the pages as I read this fact-filled suspenseful account of the final weeks of Abraham Lincoln’s life.  Beginning with the end of the Civil War, through the assassination with all its gruesome details, and ending with the punishment of the murderer, Bill O’Reilly, a former high school history teacher, takes the reader, often hour by hour, through the events surrounding the death of our 16th president.  The book is filled with authentic photos that provide added interest, and a section at the end recaps the lives of Lincoln’s family, friends, and enemies. This book is the October selection for the Bookmarks book club at the Cumming Library. This book club is designed for homeschooled students in grades 7 and up. Other teens who are available in the early afternoon are also welcome. Refreshments, donated by the FCPL Friends & Advocates, will be provided.

Registration is recommended.
