Lincoln in the Bardo

Andrea Seiger is walking us through the very space and setting of the story of Lincoln visiting his son Willie’s grave in the bestselling book, Lincoln in the Bardo. Lincoln’s clandestine visits occurred in the dark of night. Andrea is author of “111 Places You Must Not Miss in Washington DC” and the event is sponsored by Politics and Prose. Check out P&P website for an overwhelmingly interesting list of trips and events!

Looking for a good read?

We are so fortunate to benefit from people from all over, and from all industries and backgrounds. Patricia and her husband are in the film industry in southern California.

Wouldn’t it be fun to read Unconditional Surrender: The Romance of Julia and Ulysses S. Grant, and then visit Oak Hill Cemetery to hunt for Julia Dent’s resting place?

Oak Hill Cemetery just recently started a book club. It meets in the Renwick Chapel. Heavenly! And feels just like you’re in the movies!

Thank you Patricia, for your passion and your story! I enjoyed our visit!
