Robert Collins has written a new biography of Jim Lane, "Jim Lane: Scoundrel, Statesman, Kansan," published by Pelican. He'll be joined by Tim Rues of Constitution Hall in Lecompton, who will be portraying Lane. The author and his subject will converse about the book, covering aspects of Lane's life, his influence on the free-state movement, and his relationship with Abraham Lincoln. Collins will then take questions about his book. Copies of the book will be available, and the author will be available to sign.
