Book Discussion with Judy Levin

Jane Franklin, sister of Benjamin Franklin, was one of Benjamin’s closest confidantes and displayed a keen and insightful mind. Despite this, few today know much about her. Historian Jill Lepore's biography, "Book of Ages," draws upon correspondence between the siblings to build a rich and fascinating portrait of a little-known woman who deserves greater renown.
