Join “America’s best biographer” and Pulitzer Prize winner Ron Chernow, whose book inspired the musical hit Hamilton, as he discusses his newest biography, Grant. Hailed by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as “one of the pre-eminent biographers of his generation,” Chernow dazzles with a sweeping and dramatic portrait of one of our most compelling generals and presidents, Ulysses S. Grant.
