Book Group to read Hamilton

HammyThe Library’s non-fiction book group has chosen Hamilton, a meaty biography by Ron Chernow for is next selection. Alexander Hamilton is the least well known of the founding fathers but among the most influential. He rose from Caribbean bastardy through military service in Washington’s circle to a seat at the table in the writing of the Constitution and the creation of the Republic.  Many may not realize how much of our country’s financial structure we owe to him.  Chernow’s biography is “splendid, thorough and brilliantly written.”  We will allow a month to plumb its depths Copies are available at the library.
