Springfield author Eli Goodman.
The fictional journey of a $ 5 bill named Abe from the time it was created at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington, DC to finally reaching Springfield, Illinois, is the setting for Springfield’s latest book – Authors Eli Goodman.
He will be presenting “The Adventures of Abe: The $ 5 Bill” during an event on December 11th at the Jacksonville Public Library, 201 W. College Ave.
Goodman is a Philadelphia-raised internist and self-proclaimed “communist” doctor who said he believed that good deeds can heal the world. This idea is built into many of his writings, including “The White Horse,” which teaches that no one should be judged on superficial qualities.
