HODGENVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park in Kentucky is offering a new book club, and the first book selection will be about the former president's wife.

The first Parks and Pages Book Club discussion will be held Jan. 24 on the book “Mrs. Lincoln and Mrs. Keckly: The Remarkable Story of the Friendship Between a First Lady and a Former Slave," according to a statement from the National Park Service. People can attend at the park or join a virtual discussion on the park’s Facebook page using the “Facebook Live” feature.

The park service said all books during the club's first year will be on the same theme: presidential first ladies. The book for January can be purchased in the park’s book store and a couple of copies are available in the park’s library.

More book titles will be announced throughout 2020.
