Why We Selected My Dear Hamilton

Ever since, I saw Hamilton on Broadway (not with LinManuela Miranda but he did make a surprise appearance), I’ve been wanting to learn more about Alexander Hamilton.

I’ve done the Hamilton ride multiple times on the Peloton and bought my daughter this I Can Read Hamilton book.

What I realized after seeing the show was that I really wanted to find out more about Hamilton’s amazing wife, Eliza, who lived to almost 100 years old, decades past the death of her husband, and who accomplished so much on her own.

I created a poll on the Virtual Book Club Facebook Group and the votes poured in for My Dear Hamilton.

Plus, our discussion occurs soon after July 4th weekend and the Disney + airing of the filmed stage production starring the original cast, originally scheduled for theaters in 2021.

You may also be interested in buying this book, which provided the inspiration for the Broadway show or this one entitled The Hamilton Affair which examines Alexander and Eliza’s life together and his infidelity.
