Ben Franklin Circle: Silence

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Location:Yusunas Meeting Room

The Dekalb Public Library is joining a 21st-century community-building initiative inspired by Benjamin Franklin’s “club for mutual improvement,” launched more than 200 years ago.

Ben Franklin Circles are dedicated to exploring the 13 virtues identified by Franklin: Temperance, Silence, Order, Resolution, Frugality, Industry, Sincerity, Justice, Moderation, Cleanliness, Tranquility, Chastity and Humility. The group engages in conversations on what each of these virtues means today on a personal and societal level. This month we will be discussing silence, of which Franklin’s definition is “Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself. Avoid trifling conversation.”

This program is FREE and open to all ages. No registration is required. Coordinated by Tracy Rogers-Tryba.
