Hybrid:  Ken Burns' Ben Franklin Screening & Discussion

Hybrid: Ken Burns' Ben Franklin Screening & Discussion In-Person / Online

Henrietta Hankin Branch Library, in partnership with PBS Books and WETA PBS, is excited to present a screening and discussion of Benjamin Franklin: A Film by Ken Burns.  Join us virtually or in-person, Wednesday, June 29th from 6:00-7:30 pm, to watch selected clips from this engaging documentary by Ken Burns. Afterward, join Benjamin Franklin himself, protrayed by historian and living history interpreter, Mike Kochan, for an insightful conversation about the life and legacy of Benjamin Franklin. We invite and encourage the audience to ask questions, make comments and engage in a discussion about the revolutionary life of one of America's most consequential figures who used innovation, science and civic engagement to make his mark on American history.  You will even have the opportunity to examine some museum quality replicas of some of the machines Ben Franklin built and used for some of his experiments (courtesy of Mr. Kochan).

Registration is required. Registration will close 2 hours prior to the scheduled start time of the event. A Zoom link will be emailed to registrants 2 hours before the program starts.  Make sure to check the email address you registered with to receive the link.  You do not need a Zoom account to attend the virtual program.  This program supports PA Forward Civic and Social Literacy.
