Three-Story Tower of Books in Ford’s Theatre Center

The newly built Ford's Theatre Center for Education and Leadership which sits across the street from Ford's Theatre in downtown Washington, D.C., will enthrall visitors later this month with exhibits on Abraham Lincoln's life, death, and legacy. The centerpiece of the museum and learning center is a towering three-story sculpture made of 15,000+ books written about Lincoln which stretches from the ground floor to the third floor in ramshackle fashion. The center opens its doors to the public on February 12, Lincoln's birthday, and group tours are welcome starting on February 21, the day after President's Day.
