In this episode, we speak with author Martha Brockenbrough, whose latest YA novel Alexander Hamilton, Revolutionary has been taking middle and high school classrooms by storm. Our teacher panelists Beth Shaum and Amy Fleming talk with Martha about how she used primary sources to make Hamilton’s story accessible to teens, how she has been able to build a writing career that spans multiple age groups and genres, and some hints about what projects we can expect from her in the near future.
