Placeholder Image
MONROE - The Monroe Public Library will host an evening program, "The Eerie Similarities Between JFK & Lincoln," at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the library's second-floor program room. Historian Jim Gibbons will explain how John F. Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln held two presidencies, both 100 years apart. Though different moments in time, both men's lives, which included their wives, their children and the times they lived in, ran parallel to each other with startling coincidences.
