SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- The Scarsdale Public Library welcomes author Martha Hodes on Monday, March 7, for a book signing and author talk.

Hodes' "Mourning Lincoln" was a National Book Award Longlist Finalist.

The news of Abraham Lincoln’s death on April 15, 1865, just days after the Confederate surrender, astounded the war-weary nation. Countless expressions of grief and dismay were printed in newspapers and preached in sermons. Public responses to the assassination have been well-chronicled, but this book is the first to delve into the personal and intimate responses of everyday people.

Hodes is a professor of history at New York University and has taught as a Fulbright scholar in Germany and as a visiting professor at Princeton University.

Light refreshments will be served, and books will be available for purchase.

The event takes place at 7 p.m. in the Scarsdale Library Scott Room. For more information, you can call the library at 914-722-1300.

The Scarsdale Public Library is at 54 Olmsted Road.
