Carmichael's Community Book Club AUGUST: The Book of Ages

Congratulations to Jill Lepore and her BOOK OF AGES which was announced as a finalist for the National Book Award this morning!

 

Please join us as we discuss Jill Lepore's biography of Jane Franklin on Tuesday August 27th @ 7 pm.

From one of our most accomplished and widely admired historians--a revelatory portrait of Benjamin Franklin's youngest sister, Jane, whose obscurity and poverty were matched only by her brother's fame and wealth but who, like him, was a passionate reader, a gifted writer, and an astonishingly shrewd political commentator.

Making use of an astonishing 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 extraordinary woman but an entire world.
