Do you want to meet Mary Todd Lincoln?

Area residents will have two opportunities in April to meet Mary Todd Lincoln in an original play "Mrs. President: A Visit With Mary Todd Lincoln."

A shortened version of the play geared toward children and their parents will be performed April 24 at 3:30 p.m. at Willard Library. The full-length hour-long version will be performed on April 30 at Ohio Township Central Library in Newburgh at 7 p.m. Admission to these performances is free of charge.

In the play, Mrs. Lincoln talks about her childhood, her years in Springfield, and some of the later events of her life. The performances will be followed by question and answer sessions.
