Hamilton Biography Giveaway!

November 01, 2021

I'm excited to announce that I have a new biography out - The Story of Eliza Hamilton (Rockridge Press). The Kindle version came out November 2 and the print version is being released November 16. In the meantime, I'm hosting a giveaway for a signed book. Just email me here by midnight MT November 17, 2021 to enter. One winner will be randomly picked November 18. You must be 10 or older to enter.

If you're looking for a gift for a 6-9 year old who's interested in history (or who loved the Hamilton musical), you can pre-order the book here

The story is about one of our Founding Mothers who not only was the wife of Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton, but went on to become an important contributor to child welfare and literacy after Hamilton died. 

Recently I visited New York City in hoped of visiting her gravesite to pay her respect. Unfortunately, Trinity Church cemetery was closed to the public - another fallout from the pandemic. Here's what I would have seen. 

Thankfully, I was able to visit Hamilton Grange, the home Alexander and Eliza built (which was closed and under renovation). But at least I saw the building and walked the grounds, imaging the Hamilton family living there at one time. 

I'm really proud of this book and hope that you will be the winner of the signed copy so you can read about all the interesting historic facts I found out about Eliza. I agree with Lin-Manuel Miranda, she's something to sing about!
