Discover how Alexander Hamilton and the other authors of the Federalist Papers argued for ratification of the U.S. Constitution during a special talk at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 26, at Mentor Public Library’s Main Branch.
This talk concludes Dr. John Foster’s year-long series on the American Revolution with a spotlight on Hamilton, James Madison, John Jay and The Federalist Papers—a series of 85 articles that became one of our country’s defining documents.

In addition to being a reference librarian, Foster has a doctorate degree in history. He has taught history at both high school and college levels. Previously, he has led series on the Battles of World War II and US Presidents of the 20th Century.
