Cos Cob, CT - Just in time for Lincoln's birthday, the Greenwich Historical Society and the Greenwich Library will feature a screening of the Robert Redford-directed film The Conspirator on Friday, February 3, to be followed on Tuesday, February 7, by an appearance of the film's screenwriter, James Solomon. The Conspirator is about a surprisingly little known aspect of the Lincoln assassination, the case of Mary Surratt, a southern woman tried for taking part in the conspiracy to assassinate the president and reluctantly defended by a young northern attorney Frederick Aiken. Mr. Solomon will discuss his inspiration and subsequent research for the screenplay, which was 18 years in the making. He will also touch upon his own conclusions regarding the guilt or innocence of Mary Surratt. The subject is as timely as it is fascinating, and the critically acclaimed film reminds us that as a nation, we still grapple with the subject of civil rights and military tribunals.

The Conspirator Screening: Friday, February 3, 8:00 pm.
James Solomon, Lecture, Tuesday, February 7, 7:00 pm.

Greenwich Library, Cole Auditorium, 101 West Putnam Avenue, Greenwich, CT.
Admission to both the film screening and lecture is free. Seating is first come, first served.
