This month, we are reading Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow, an extensive biography of revolutionary and early American stateman, Alexander Hamilton. 

While an atypical book club read, it is the main text source for the 2015 smash hit musical, "Hamilton." Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote the musical and originated the titular role, with Chernow as a historical consultant. 

"Hamilton" the musical went on to live eleven Tony Awards, the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, and the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.  

Copies of Alexander Hamilton will be available at the Northeast Library, or you can place a hold yourself from the catalog

Use your library card to access supplemental materials:

  • Listen to the original Broadway cast recording of "Hamilton"
  • Watch "Hamilton: One Shot to Broadway" on Kanopy, of how the creators of Hamilton went from an idea about a hip-hop inspired telling of the founding of the United States to the biggest musical in America.  
  • Read other books by Ron Chernow.
