The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library holds an unparalleled collection of books, documents, photographs, artifacts and art, as well as some 12 million items pertaining to all aspects of Illinois history. The Illinois History Forum gives historians and other experts opportunities to discuss particular books from the collection or museum exhibits and also offers audience members a chance to ask questions and share their observations. The suggested book for the next discussion is The Making of the Atomic Bomb by Richard Rhodes.  The library’s oral historian, Mark DePue, will lead the discussion.  Reservations are not required and attendees are welcome to bring a lunch.  The final forum of the year will be held on Nov. 14.
