)-- Whether captured in the movie The Conspirator, the story of Mary Elizabeth Surratt an alleged conspirator in the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln or recently released Lincoln historical drama film directed and produced by Steven Spielberg or the National League of American Pen Women’s (NLAPW) book, Happy Birthday, Mr. Lincoln: a commemorative collage, nation-wide all remain intrigued by the influence of Lincoln’s legacy.
Happy Birthday, Mr. Lincoln: a commemorative collage -
To celebrate the life and legacy of Abraham Lincoln, the NLAPW challenged their membership to produce artistic, dramatic, literary and musical works that speak to Lincoln’s style of leadership, his contemplative character and his persuasive use of language. “The results, a book,” says Anna DiBella past National President and project editor “is not meant to be an academic collection. Instead, it is inventive, imaginative and adventurous: a challenge issued to NLAPW’s membership to review their family and community histories as influenced by Lincoln.”
As a result, the League’s book was recognized by the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge George Washington Metal as a collaborative effort to promote an understanding and appreciation of America’s rich heritage and unique freedoms.
