Throughout his life Benjamin Franklin used over a dozen pseudonyms to publish work. Those works provoked and influenced many of his readers. Let’s explore the many characters that Franklin created and the impact they had on his legacy. 

Join Museum Guide Grant Struble as he leads this program, leave with a greater appreciation for Franklin’s literary skills, and ponder some questions about the way false narratives can affect society.

This program will be approximately 40 minutes in length and guests are encouraged to tour the exhibition, Dr. Franklin, Citizen Scientist, afterwards!
