Saturdays on the Porch with Author John Cribb
December 5, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Saturday, December 5, 2020 | 1 – 3 PM | The Book Tavern
Join us December 5th for a Saturday on the Porch with author John Cribb!! He will delight us with a reading & signing to follow in celebration of his novel, Old Abe,” at 1pm.
John Cribb is a bestselling author who has written about subjects ranging from history to education. His previous work includes coauthoring The American Patriot’s Almanac and The Educated Child, both New York Times bestsellers; co-editing The Human Odyssey, a 3-volume world history text, and developing on-line history courses.
Old Abe is John’s first novel. Abraham Lincoln has been his hero from history since boyhood, when he read about Abe growing up on the frontier in the old Childhood of Famous Americans biography series. John’s bookshelves are now full of Lincoln books. His love of history, Lincoln, and a good story led to Old Abe. John worked on the novel on and off for a dozen years, which means it took three times as long to write the darned thing than it did for Lincoln to win the Civil War.
We’ll be set up outside on the front patio. Please observe the rules of social distancing and maintain a six foot distance from people not in your party. We ask you to be respectful of the author and keep conversations brief if others are waiting to get their books signed. Also, while in the store, we do require you wear a mask, so please come prepared as you’ll need to enter the store for checkout.
