"Hamilton's Women" presented by Leslie Goddard

2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Main Library
Second Floor - Veterans Room

Alexander Hamilton was not just a powerful Founding Father, he was also a loving husband and father, a flirtatious brother-in-law, and an incorrigible lady-killer. In this new living-history portrayal, meet the real Schuyler sisters: His wife, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, and two of her witty, charming sisters, Angelia Schuyler Church and Peggy Schuyler van Rensslaer. Actress and scholar Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., brings these smart, beautiful women to life as they discuss their complicated relationships with Hamilton and the other men in their lives and help shape the new nation.

You don’t need to have seen the smash hit musical Hamilton to enjoy this, but if you have, it’ll bring the history behind the show alive! This is a collaboration with the Oak Park-River Forest League of Women Voters and the Oak Park Public Library.

Detection by Daylight:"The Moving Target"

12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Maze Branch
Meeting Room - Maze Branch
The Moving Target by Ross MacDonald

Like many Southern California millionaires, Ralph Sampson keeps odd company. There’s the sun-worshipping holy man whom Sampson once gave his very own mountain; the fading actress with sidelines in astrology and S&M. Now one of Sampson’s friends may have arranged his kidnapping. Lew Archer follows the clues from the canyon sanctuaries of the mega rich to jazz joints where you get beaten up between sets. Lew Archer series #1.

Detection by Daylight is devoted to reading and discussing detective mysteries in series and non-series form. Bring your lunch (if you like), enjoy cookies and coffee on us, and engage in great discussions.

Titles are available at Maze Branch one month before the discussion. 
Learn more about all of our monthly book discussions.
