The B&N Podcast

Apr 20, 2018

If Americans in the 21st century know about the role Aaron Burr played in the founding of our country, it's likely that it's because of the electrifying performance by Leslie Odom, Jr. in the Broadway smash Hamilton.  Now, the multi-talented actor and singer draws on his own fascinating life and career in his new book for younger readers, Failing Up: How to Take Risks, Aim Higher, and Never Stop Learning.  He joins us on the podcast to talk about his commitment to mentoring students and young performers, his own struggles with uncertainty, and his belief that in order to stand, you've got to be ready to fall.
