Book discussion and signing, reception and library open house

"Abraham Lincoln: An Uncommon Common Man," will be discussed by Gerald Henig, author of, "A Nation Transformed: How the Civil War Changed America Forever," at 1 p.m. Thursday, February 12 when California State University, East Bay (CSUEB) commemorates the 200th birthday of this nation's 16th president.

The free lecture in the University Library Biella Room, 25800 Carlos Bee Blvd., Hayward, will be presented by the University Library in conjunction with the Department of History and the College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences. A book signing, reception and Library Open House will follow. All are free and open to everyone.

Henig, a CSUEB professor emeritus of history, will focus on how a common man from the Illinois prairies achieved greatness by instituting a "new birth of freedom" for all Americans and preserved the first "people's government" in modern history.
