Author Jerry Weinberger Discusses His Book "Benjamin Franklin Unmasked: On the Unity of His Moral, Religious, and Political Thought"
Think of all the ways you could define Benjamin Franklin: founding father, printer, inventor, public servant and even the unsavory titles of scoundrel and womanizing phony. So, who was the real Ben Franklin? Well, MSU Professor, Jerry Weinberger, looks behind the many masks of this historical figure and proves that the man was far more remarkable than anyone has yet discovered!
This event includes a book signing and copies of Weinburger's book 'Benjamin Franklin Unmasked: On the Unity of His Moral, Religious, and Political Thought' will be on sale. This lecture is held in conjunction with the Downtown Library May 4 - July 8 exhibit, Ben Franklin: In Search of a Better World
Tuesday May 17, 2011: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
