Ray E. Boomhower will sign copies of his most recent book, “Mr. President: A Life of Benjamin Harrison,” from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 16 at Village Lights Bookstore on Main Street in Madison.

Boomhower, senior editor at the Indiana Historical Society Press and an award-winning author, also has written biographies of many other notable Hoosiers, including World War II correspondent Ernie Pyle, astronaut Gus Grisson and Union general and author Lew Wallace. He also will sign those books.

The book about Harrison examines the political rise and presidental legacy of Harrison, America’s 23rd president. The 13th volume in the historical society’s Youth Biography Series, “Mr. President: A Life of Benjamin Harrison” will explore Harrison’s ascent to political prominence after his service as a Union army general during the Civil War. The novel also delves into the critical role Indiana, Harrison’s adopted home state, played in the national elections during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Since the Indiana Historical Society Press Youth Biography Series began in 2005, it has examined the lives of a variety of Hoosiers, including Indiana’s first saint, Theodora Guerin; black sheriff Oatess Archey, and correspondent Pyle.
