You’ve heard of the hit musical Hamilton. But how many characters actually spent time in Charleston or touched our city in some way? New York Times bestselling author Andra Watkins takes her audience on a romp through history.

Where did George Washington have a drink? Did Aaron Burr visit a favorite haunt? Was Theodosia unnaturally close to her father as some claimed?

See historical layers more colorfully, and get your very own copy of Andra’s newest book, Hard to Die. It weaves an afterlife story for Theodosia Burr Alston, ill-fated daughter of Aaron Burr, Alexander Hamilton’s killer. Part of the proceeds from book sales during the event will benefit the Friends of the Library.
