L.M. Elliott - Hamilton and Peggy!

L.M. Elliott will be appearing to read from and discuss Hamilton and Peggy! Students from Sussex Academy will be performing a Reader's Theater selection from the book, and attendees can take part in Hamilton trivia, with prizes to be won.

Drawing from historical journals and letters, New York Times bestselling author L.M. Elliott weaves a richly detailed tale about the extraordinary Peggy Schuyler and her revolutionary friendship with Alexander Hamilton. Perfect for fans of the smash Broadway musical sensation Hamilton!

Peggy Schuyler has always felt like she's existed in the shadows of her beloved sisters: the fiery, intelligent Angelica and beautiful, sweet Eliza. But it's in the throes of a chaotic war that Peggy finds herself a central figure amid Loyalists and Patriots, spies and traitors, friends and family.

When a flirtatious aide-de-camp, Alexander Hamilton, writes to Peggy asking for her help in wooing the earnest Eliza, Peggy finds herself unable to deny such an impassioned plea. A fast friendship forms between the two, but Alexander is caught in the same war as her father, and the danger to all their lives is real. Everything is a battlefield - from the frontlines to their carefully coded letters - but will Peggy's bravery's and intelligence be enough to keep them all safe?

The event will take place on Thursday, May 24th, beginning at 6:00 PM.
