March book discussion: Book of Ages - The Life and Opinions of Jane Franklin
You know about Ben. He was a printer, scientist, and served the American revolution in many ways. Book of Ages: the Life and Opinions of Jane Franklin is about his younger sister. She married at 15 and was mother of 12 children. She also loved to read, wrote numerous letters to Ben, and offered her own political opinions in her later years. Despite the loss of many of Jane’s letters, author Jill Lepore brings her story to life. Library Journal review: “This book is an important, inspiring portrait of a determined and faith-filled woman who just happened to be the sister of a big shot.” Join us on March 27 at 2:30 to talk about her life.
