The Papers of Abraham Lincoln Posted Sep 19, 2013 @ 01:01 AM
Editor’s note: With Nov. 19 marking the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, The Papers of Abraham Lincoln will feature letters to or by Lincoln, written between the end of Battle of Gettysburg on July 3, 1863, and his famous speech.
In 2002, a novel thought to be the first written by an African-American woman became a best seller, praised for its dramatic depiction of Southern life in the mid-1850s through the observant eyes of a refined and literate house servant.
A copy of letter from Abraham Lincoln written to a nephew in Oregon in 1860, then photo-copied - literally - onto two glass negatives around World War I in Tacoma. Not seen since then, those negatives were re-discovered this year by the Tacoma Historical Society, which was going through dozens of donated boxes of negatives.
When I have heard that Steven Spielberg comes to my city I was deeply excited. I thought about a chance to get one of the best autograph in my collection. Spielberg has shoot scenes here in Wroclaw to his new movie called 'St. James Place'. Basically, sets were located in Berlin and Potsdam, but a crew planned to visiting Poland for a few days. Additionally, local media spread rumors about Tom Hanks, Janusz Kaminski or Sebastian Koch are coming as well. Finally, in the middle of November, here they come.
Every year the F1 Grand Prix of Monaco is the amazing Highlight of the season. It is like a paradise, where you can collect autographs. There are many opportunities to meet the stars. E.g. at the charity soccer match, around the many yachts in the harbor, at the Hugo Boss-Party or at a prêt-a-porter. There is always something an amazement!
Lewis Hamilton has become the most arrogant person inside the F1 paddock. He did not sign photographs at all, especially large ones. He ignored them at any time. He only did sign a few programmes, papers and other fan stuff. There was no chance to get an photograph signed at all.
