Meet Abe Lincoln's Friend

by Miriam R | Sep 15, 2017
One chair. One woman. When she opens her mouth, 200 students and teachers are mesmerized for 50 minutes. Premiere Hoosier storyteller, Doyne Carson, brings to life the story of Abraham Lincoln’s youth as she portrays Abigail Gollaher, the sister of Abraham Lincoln’s boyhood friend, Austin Gollaher in this exciting dramatic presentation. In a time when technology, media hype and glitz catch our attention, the simple act of a well told story still captures our total attention.
