Washington-Centerville Public Library, in partnership with Centerville-Washington History, is pleased to host a traveling exhibit and complementary events about Alexander Hamilton.
The exhibit, centered around one of our nation’s Founding Fathers, the first Secretary of the Treasury, and the subject of the hit Broadway musical phenomenon, opens November 29 at Centerville Library, 111 W. Spring Valley Road. The exhibit will be open to the public through the end of the year during open library hours.
“We are thrilled to have this exhibit at a time when Hamilton is getting a lot of interest and exposure due to the success of Lin Manuel Miranda’s musical,” says Sue Shay, exhibit coordinator. The exhibit is on loan from the Gilder Lehrman Institute of New York and examines Hamilton’s central role during the Revolutionary War and his influence as a soldier, lawmaker, immigrant, economist, and futurist for modern American.
The exhibit is complemented by several opportunities to learn more about Hamilton, the man, and Hamilton, the musical. All events will be at Centerville Library and no reservations are needed. Events for adults and older students include:
Who Was Hamilton? – November 29 & November 30, 7 p.m., presented by Paul D. Lockhart, PhD, Wright State University; and
Hamilton on Broadway – December 6 & December 7, 7 p.m., presented by Gary Minyard, VP of Education & Engagement of the Victoria Theatre Association.
