C. J. King first became interested in the Lincoln women when she learned she is related to them through the Harlan family. After visiting Hildene, the Lincoln family home in Manchester, she moved to Vermont and began this research.
A resident of Jamaica and a native Hoosier, she holds a B.A. in journalism from Ball State University and an M.F.A. in writing from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. During more than 25 years as a professional writer, she has published many articles in newspapers and magazines, including the Manchester Journal, Stratton Magazine and Vermont Magazine. "Four Marys and a Jessie: The Story of the Lincoln Women," published by Hildene in 2005, is her first book.
This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
