It’s Children’s Book Week!

Please join us for an outside signing with Jan Jacobi and his young adult novel, Young Lincoln.

Abe Lincoln is growing up on the American frontier in Indiana. It’s cold, there isn’t usually enough to eat, there’s nothing at all to read, and the one job that awaits him is farmer, like his overbearing father. But a chance to travel down the Mississippi river offers Abe the opportunity to see and meet people he has never dreamed of.

Jan Jacobi has taught middle school English and humanities in three schools for over 40 years. For 27 years, he served as Head of Lower School at St. Louis Country Day School and Head of Middle School at MICDS. For the past five years he has taught 7th and 8th grade humanities at the St. Michael School in Clayton. He and his wife Ginger have three grown children, and they live with three dogs and a cat.
