Abe Lincoln, Vampires, and Other Great Presidents’ Day Reads
Presidents’ Day is near. You’ll be off school and probably need something to …kill the time, right?
Well, stop by the library tomorrow and grab one of these great Presidents’ Day read:
Jefferson’s Sons — We hear about it more now than ever before: Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings, his slave, were lovers. This fictionalized account of the end of Jefferson’s life is seen through the eyes of his, and Sally’s, sons.
Life: an Exploded Diagram — Heard about the Cuban Missile Crisis? How J.F.K. stared down the Communist threat and adverted World War III? Well, you haven’t heard it this way. Told from the perspective of an English working class teen, Clem, and his attempts to woo his father’s boss’s daughter during a time where The End Was Near.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter – Abraham Lincoln led us through the Civil War but what if the Civil War wasn’t about slavery and North vs. South? What if the Civil War was about vampires and Life vs. Death?
Oh, yeah… And this summer, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter will be coming out as a movie. The trailer is just out and it looks viciously sweet.
