Lin Manuel Miranda

Check out Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Summer Reading List

Sharing a list of all the books he devoured while on holidays, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote ‘I read so much on vacation! This is everything I liked.’ He was quick to clarify, however, that he will not be adapting any of them into musicals. 


He offers a very diverse list! Ahead of the movie’s release next year, Miranda read Madeleine D’Engle’s ‘A Wrinkle in Time,’ as well as the sequel ‘A Wind in the Door.’ He also read ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’ in Spanish, and sections from Tolstoy’s famous tome ‘War and Peace.’
