Between the Lines Book Club: Alexander Hamilton

between the lines book club logoThis month’s Book Club pick is Alexander Hamilton, a biography by Ron Chernow. The book inspired Lin-Manuel Miranda to write Hamilton, the musical. We will be meeting in person at Arden-Dimick Library, Sacramento California, on January 28th at 10:30 AM to discuss the book.

Hamilton is Chernow’s fifth book. It was followed by a biography of George Washington, published in 2010, which won the Pulitzer Prize for biography. He’s currently working on a biogrpahy of Ulysses S. Grant.

In this interview with Charlie Rose, Chernow talks about writing the biography, and about Hamilton’s place in history.
