      *Alabama Author Wade Hall Performs Dramatic Interpretation of An
      Interview with Abraham Lincoln*
      /Part of BPL's Alabama Bound Presents/

      Birmingham, Alabama-In Alabama native Wade Hall's book An Interview with
      Abraham Lincoln, journalist and Union soldier Shelby Grider is granted
      an interview with the sixteenth president three weeks before Lincoln is
      assassinated. Grider gets Honest Abe to open up about personal subjects
      ranging from his childhood to marriage, and his desire to unite a
      divided nation. Hall makes this historical event resonate by using
      excerpts of Lincoln's speeches and letters as the basis for Lincoln's
      replies.

      This particular Alabama Bound Presents is more than a book talk and
      lecture: Hall will entertain the audience with a dramatic interpretation
      of his work. Come celebrate Lincoln's birthday at Central Library's
      Arrington Auditorium on Saturday, February 12, 2011, at 2:00 p.m. Copies
      of his book will be available for purchase and signing.

      A resident of Louisville, Kentucky, since 1962, Wade Hall has since
      relocated to his hometown of Unions Springs, Alabama. He is the author
      of more than twenty books and hundreds of articles, poems, essays, and
      reviews. A retired English professor, he holds degrees from Troy State
      University, the University of Alabama, and the University of Illinois.
      His work has been adapted for the stage and he is a recipient of the
      Alabama Library Association's literary award for "Distinguished
      Contribution to Alabama's Literary Heritage."

      Alabama Bound Presents is a series of Alabama author talks and book
      signings offered free-of-charge by Birmingham Public Library. Alabama
      Bound Presents highlights local and regional authors that reflect the
      diversity of our community and draw from a wide range of personal
      experience. Through programs such as these, the library seeks to provide
      Birmingham citizens of all ages opportunities for entertainment, ongoing
      education, and personal growth and an opportunity for local authors to
      publicize their latest work. This series replaces the one day event,
      Alabama Bound, previously held in the spring.
