Songs Lincoln Loved

6 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 19

It has been widely acknowledged by Lincoln scholars that Abraham Lincoln was a poetic and sentimental man. Music played a large part in his everyday life Abe LOVED music. Suzanne and Jim have researched and recaptured many of the songs Lincoln loved, songs that affected and shaped him throughout his life. Examining this music reveals an intimate view of the character of the man, his strength and the inspiration that guided him from his humble log cabin beginnings to the office of President of the United States during our country's most turbulent time. Suzanne and Jim offer light-hearted songs such as Blue Tail Fly, sentimental songs like Gentle Annie, along with humorous songs that lifted Abe's spirits during times of trouble. Sponsored in part by the Friends of the Pine Island Public Library.

Book Discussion: The Light Between Oceans

by M. L. Stedman

1:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 27

Location: United Methodist Church,

5701 Pine Island Road

After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day's journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season, Tom brings a young, bold and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby's cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby. Tom, who keeps meticulous records and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel insists the baby is a "gift from God," and against Tom's judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy. When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice has devastated one of them.
