Inside The Blanket Fort - Episode 116
Journey back Inside The Blanket Fort as we honor Women's History Month this week with a book about a famous and often misunderstood woman: Mary Todd Lincoln.
Donna D. McCreary’s new book Mary Lincoln Demystified: Frequently Asked Questions about Abraham’s Wife approaches Mary Lincoln in a new way. The book follows a unique question-and-answer format drawn from the questions McCreary received from audience members during her more than thirty years lecturing about and portraying Mary Lincoln in live performances. The book was inspired by the public’s enduring curiosity about one of our most fascinating first ladies. McCreary’s decades of conversations with audiences, scholars, and relatives of the Todd family prepared her to give readers a portrait of Mary Lincoln that won’t be found elsewhere.
