There was a screening of Rediscovering Alexander Hamilton, my new documentary, at the Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center earlier this week. Among the guests were Walter Russell Mead, historian; Max Rudin, publisher of the Library of America; Richard Snow, author and longtime editor of American Heritage; and a cohort of my colleagues led by Jack Fowler. Herbert London, president of the Hudson Institute, MC’d. Michael Pack, the director and producer, and I took questions afterwards.
If you ever want to see what your face looks like when it is 15 feet tall, have your documentary shown at the Walter Reade Theater. I felt like Rhett Butler or Lawrence of Arabia, until the house lights came back up and I went back to being me.
Rediscovering Alexander Hamilton airs on PBS, April 11, 10 p.m. to midnight (but check your local listings).
