Write the Revolution Author Talk with L.M. Elliott

Join New York Times best-selling author​ L.M. Elliott for a lively afternoon talk, book signing and trivia about the Schuyler sisters, who Alexander Hamilton first met during the army’s 1780 winter encampment in Morristown. Although Margaret “Peggy” Schuyler’s character only had 36 solo words in Hamilton: An American Musical, Elliott will present how in real life, Peggy witnessed some of the Revolution’s most momentous events, spy craft, war councils with Iroquois allies, Burgoyne's invasion, and balls with French troops.

Throughout the program, Elliott will share how she used historical documents--letters, journals, and memoirs--to discover and create dramatic fact-infused story. This author talk is specifically designed for teens and Hamilton-lovers of all ages.
