Today is Presidents Day, and we celebrate with this Book Trailer of the Week for Ron Chernow’s landmark biography Washington: A Life. In this fascinating clip, the National Book Award-winning author tours in person several of the same landmark locations he visits in the pages of his richly nuanced portrait of America’s first President. A 2010 NY Times Notable Book, Chernow’s carefully researched page turner brings Washington to vivid life as “a dashing, passionate man of fiery opinions and many moods” while recounting how he rose from humble beginnings to become the father of our nation. A unique, groundbreaking biography not to be missed. Happy Birthday, George![youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKAnW62X8vU]
