The ISHS Book Club will meet the third Wednesday each month at 6:00pm at the Idaho State Archives. Discussions will be led by Steve Barrett, archivist, BSU adjunct faculty member, and coordinator of ISHS’ Abraham Lincoln: His Legacy in Idaho permanent exhibit. Each month, we will read and discuss a new title on some aspect of American history. For March, Women’s History Month, the ISHS Book Club will be reading and discussing Mary Lincoln: A Biography by Jean Baker and published by W. W. Norton & Company, 1989 (2008). Copies of Mary Lincoln: A Biography are available at Rediscovered Books, 180 N. Eighth Street, Boise, (208) 376-4229.
