Richard Bell delivers program on Ben Franklin at Smithsonian

In an absorbing day, historian Richard Bell explores four aspects of the public and private life of America’s favorite Founding Father, tackling his experiences as writer and printer, inventor and philanthropist, husband and father, and reluctant revolutionary. To help participants better understand this wonderfully flawed and familiar figure, the day includes reading and discussion of a few short pieces written by Franklin.
