Mr. Chernow will not be signing books after his lecture. Copies of Grant, with a signed bookplate, will be available for sale by Classic Lines Books & More.

The definitive biography Grant is a grand synthesis of painstaking research and literary brilliance that makes sense of all sides of Grant’s life, explaining how this simple Midwesterner could at once be so ordinary and so extraordinary. With his famous lucidity, breadth, and meticulousness, Chernow finds the threads that bind the disparate stories that have defined Ulysses S. Grant together, shedding new light on the man whom Walt Whitman described as “nothing heroic… and yet the greatest hero.”

Ron Chernow is the prize-winning author of six books and the recipient of the 2015 National Humanities Medal. His first book, The House of Morgan, won the National Book Award, Washington: A Life won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Biography, and Alexander Hamilton was the inspiration for the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical.
