Join us on Monday, August 11, 2014, when we discuss Book of Ages: the Life and Opinions of Jane Franklin by Jill Lepore.
A revelatory portrait of Benjamin Franklin's youngest sister and a history of history itself. Like her brother, Jane Franklin was a passionate reader, a gifted writer, and an astonishingly shrewd political commentator. Unlike him, she was a mother of twelve. Benjamin Franklin, who wrote more letters to his sister than he wrote to anyone else, was the original American self-made man; his sister spent her life caring for her children. They left very different traces behind. Making use of an amazing cache of little-studied material, including documents, objects, and portraits only just discovered, Jill Lepore brings Jane Franklin to life in a way that illuminates not only this one woman but an entire world--a world usually lost to history. (Descriptive content by Syndetics, a Bowker service.)
Copies of the book will be available at the library the evening of Monday, July 14, following the General Book Club discussion. For more information contact Teresa Iversen at 815-756-9568, x270 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
