About the Book:

The New York Times bestselling author of Mrs. Lincoln’s Sisters and Switchboard Soldiers unveils the private lives of President Abraham Lincoln and his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, through the eyes of the First Lady’s most trusted confidante and friend in this compelling historical novel.
In a life that spanned nearly a century and witnessed some of the most momentous events in American history, Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley was born a slave. A gifted seamstress, she earned her freedom by the skill of her needle, and won the friendship of First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln by her devotion.
A sweeping historical novel, Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker illuminates the extraordinary relationship the two women shared, beginning in the hallowed halls of the White House during the trials of the Civil War and enduring almost, but not quite, to the end of Mrs. Lincoln’s days.
Tae & the Neighborly | Great Hall Concert Series
Mar 10 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Tae & The Neighborly, aWisconsin based Soul-pop R&B group, found themselves playing music together in a very unconventional way. They were all neighbors, each one living alone on one floor of a five-story flat. Cake baking is a shared passion of the five member group, but in the sugar shortages early in the 2020 pandemic, they found themselves so continually knocking on each other’s doors asking for a single cup of sugar that a group decision was made to all move in together and share cake-baking resources. And since everyone knows all good rhythms begin in the kitchen, it wasn’t before long that the group began to write and perform together  across the nation. Critics hail the group as “having more kick than a bagged-up mule” (Rotary Times)  and their live show “…going down smoother than a can of [beans] warmed on the campfire” (Cowboy Gazette). All in all, if you are looking for a dense show that will give you more inspiration fuel for self lovin’, world changin’, and consideration havin’ meet them where the music is made to be shared.

Pegasis | Great Hall Concert Series
Mar 24 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

PEGASIS is a vocal trio of Dominican sisters (Marvelis, Rissel, and Yaina Peguero) and jazz guitarist Matt Hillman. Currently based out of Green Bay, Wisconsin, the four members write, produce, and perform their original music. Their lyrics speak of the struggles and triumphs of everyday life, on being kind to our minds and bodies, on finding love and happiness, first and foremost within ourselves, and accepting each other as a part of the global collective we call humanity.
From an early age, music was an integral part of the trio’s lives. Their parents, also musicians, spent much of their time traveling to different places to sing. This would become the beginning of Marvelis, Rissel, and Yaina’s love of music and performing.
PEGASIS came about when Matt Hillman joined the trio bringing his extensive experience in jazz guitar. Matt studied at The McNally School of Music and would finish his jazz studies undergrad at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay where he would meet Rissel, his future wife and music partner. The two formed a Jazz Duo called ‘M.a.R’ and released two albums (‘The Fourth Mode’ and ‘Reflections’) in which Marvelis and Yaina would provide background vocals. The two groups spent the better part of two years performing at each other’s shows before making the decision to morph the two groups into one, thus creating PEGASIS.
