Author Daniel L. Stika will make a presentation at the Salem Community Library on Wednesday, Sept. 5, at 6 p.m.

Stika’s book, “When Lincoln Met Wisconsin’s Nightingale,” brings to life the work of Wisconsinite Cordelia Harvey, who tirelessly worked during the Civil War to create northern hospitals for the Union’s wounded and ill soldiers. Harvey’s life and her accomplishments are for those who love a good story, especially when there is a Wisconsin connection.

Stika’s visit has been arranged by the Friends of Community Library.
