Mrs. Lincoln’s Salon

Presented by Debra Miller

Sunday, January 21, 2018, 2 p.m.

You are cordially invited to attend “Mrs. Lincoln’s Salon” on Sunday, the 21st of January, at 2 o’clock in the afternoon at the Allen County Public Library’s Main Library, 900 Library Plaza, Fort Wayne.  Join us in Meeting Room A-B to meet the First Lady and learn about her life from her childhood to her days in the Executive Mansion.


“Mrs. Lincoln’s Salon” takes place in the Executive Mansion Blue Room on April 4th, 1865.  The president and the Lincolns’ youngest son, Tad, are at City Point; Robert, their eldest, is with General Grant in pursuit of Robert E. Lee; and Mary is alone in the Executive Mansion.  The audience is invited to reminisce with Mrs. Lincoln about her childhood, her days in Springfield, her children, and the approaching end of the Civil War.


Drawing from Mary Todd Lincoln’s own letters to friends, family, and political figures of the era, Chicago actress Debra Miller presents in “Mrs. Lincoln’s Salon” a picture of Mary Todd Lincoln that is both sympathetic and truthful.


This is the first Lincoln at the Library Series program for 2018 and is free and open to the public.  The Lincoln at the Library Series is sponsored by the Friends of the Allen County Public Library.
