Nora Titone recounts John Wilkes Booth’s family background and specifically examines the relationship between John and his older brother, Edwin Booth. Born to British actor, Junius Brutus Booth, the siblings aspired to become actors as well. Edwin succeeded and was one of the stars of his day while John struggled in the craft. Ms. Titone explores the rivalry between the Booth brothers and the possible role it played in John Wilkes Booth’s assassination of President Abraham Lincoln at Ford’s Theater on April 14, 1865. Nora Titone showed slides as she presented her book at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield, Illinois. She also responded to questions from members of the audience. close
