The Hill: Inside the Secret World of the U.S. Capitol (Hardcover)
#1 New York Times bestselling author Kate Andersen Brower shares a special look inside America’s Capitol and highlights what the people who work there mean to the future of democracy. Perfect for readers of Brower’s first middle grade book, Exploring the White House!
There’s a secret world hidden in the halls of the U.S. Capitol!
The first stone was laid by George Washington himself, and the building stands today as one of the most recognizable symbols of the oldest democracy in the world. In this home of America’s legislative branch, senators and representatives fight to pass laws they believe are for the good of the country.
But these hallowed halls, which some swear are haunted, also harbor a deep history—both extraordinary and unsettling—and that is an equally important part of America’s story.
There is an entire universe tucked away inside the Capitol, and #1 New York Times bestselling author Kate Andersen Brower highlights the historic firsts, the building’s restricted nooks and crannies, and the staffers—from pages to doorkeepers to librarians—who ensure that American democracy stays on track.
