Jeremy McCarter, coauthor of the New York Times bestseller Hamilton: The Revolution with Lin-Manuel Miranda, is the storyteller of record for the genre-defying cultural phenomenon that is Hamilton. His newest book Young Radicals, is about idealists fighting for freedom and equality in the early twentieth century. A common thread in McCarter's work is the power of storytelling to drive social change from our country's rebellious founders to the dreamers of the Progressive Era to the modern-day musical that has proven to be a once-in-a-generation cultural coup.
