Event description

Description

A special event to benefit The Hispanic Federation Relief Fund for Puerto Rico (Hurricane relief endorsed by Hamilton's creator Lin-Manuel Miranda). Six months out, many Puerto Ricans are still without eletricity. They need our help!

The evening will include:

  • A gourmet cooking demonstration & 4-course meal with wine paring, prepared and demonstrated by Chef Christal Karnaze, founder of Boot-Camp Kitchen and instructer for Miele and Williams Sonoma
  • A Trivia contest to get your Hamilton-groove going
  • A talk given by NY Times Best-selling author L.M. Elliott, on what research into the youngest Schuyler sister ("And Peggy!") revealed about the Revolutionary back-story of The Schuyler Sisters, their family, and their relationship with Alexander Hamilton
  • A signed copy of Hamilton and Peggy! A Revolutionary Friendship

Since Hurricane Maria devastated the island, The Hispanic Federation has distributed millions of pounds of food and water, emergency essentials, medical supplies, and water filtration systems and generators to Puerto Ricans. To rebuild, our fellow Americans still need expert personnel, building materials and supplies from our mainland. Every cent of your $175 ticket will be directly donated to this work.

Reviews for Hamilton and Peggy! A Revolutionary Friendship

"Elliott combines a flair for fiction with masterly research... she does a remarkable job of humanizing important historical figures; despite the title, Hamilton is just one of several intriguing people in Peggy's sphere." *Publishers' Weekly

"Peggy is the Jo March of this family, intelligent and fierce... Elliott has accomplished something wonderful here, and this is an absolute must have" School Library Journal

"An engaging novel that navigates the challenge of maintaining historical accuracy while upholding the personalities popularized by the musical" Booklist
