Nancy Rubin Stuart -283

Award-winning author and historian Nancy Rubin Stuart joins us to talk about her new book, Poor Richard’s Women: Deborah Read Franklin and he Other Women Behind the Founding Father.
Nancy does a terrific job uncovering the story of Ben Franklin’s romantic and flirtatious relationships with women. It’s a beautifully written snapshot of life in colonial times at the birth of a nation.  The women of the era finally have their stories told and readers will come away with a new sense of understanding for them and for Dr. Franklin.
