Lecture: What We've Forgotten about Lincoln's Body, and What We've Never Known
April 15, 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's death, and over that five-generation span he has settled into his place as the most beloved American president. Join Richard Wightman Fox, Professor of History at USC and author of Lincoln's Body: A Cultural History, as he explores how, ever since his assassination, Americans have tied Lincoln's eloquent words and heroic deeds to his utterly unique physical body.
This event will be taking place in The Huntington's new Rothenberg Hall.
The Cafe will be open for light suppers prior to this event. From 5:30 p.m. until the start of the program, attendees can enjoy selected items including artisan pizzas, sushi, cheeses and charcuterie, and beer or wine. The Cafe is located just steps away from Rothenberg Hall and offers beautiful garden views.
There will be a book signing with author, Richard Wightman Fox, following the lecture. There will also be complimentary coffee and cookies available.
