Adams & Acorns

book cover image John Quincey Adams

What is it about the Adams family tree? Every branch seems to be sprouting a biography.

David McCulloch's Pulitzer-prize winning John Adams (2001) was the first. The HBO mini-series with Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney (2008) followed. Now, we have biographies of not only of John Quincy Adams, the sixth President of the United States, but also his wife Louisa. It's a forest of Adamses.
