Stephen Spignesi's "Hip-Hop Hamilton" program is a 90-minute illustrated lecture that provides fascinating facts about 12 of America's Founders—George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, James Madison, John Jay, James Monroe, Thomas Paine, Patrick Henry, Samuel Adams, John Hancock, and of course, Alexander Hamilton, the subject of the smash Broadway musical.
The program includes a fascinating slideshow, and also the playing and discussion of two songs from the musical, with the lyrics provided.
Attendees also receive a tri-fold, color, signed limited edition "Hip Hamilton" brochure, along with a signed book card. Frameable copies of the Declaration of Independence are available for sale with all proceeds going to the library.
Stephen Spignesi is a retired Practitioner in Residence from the University of New Haven and the author of more than 70 books. Signed copies of "Hip-Hop Hamilton" will be available for purchase at the conclusion of the program.
Mask Update: Masks are required for all program attendees despite vaccination status.
Attendance at juvenile programs is limited to children of the age group for which the program is intended and their caregivers.
