Join historical portrayer, RJ Lindsey as he brings to life Benjamin Franklin. With a wink and a smile, ol' Ben invites you to dinner, and over a fine glass of claret, tells stories of his youth, his inventions (lightning rod, stove, bifocal glasses, book grabber, swim fins, first political cartoon), public institutions (the first: police force, volunteer fire department, lending library, hospital, educational academy) and people of the revolution: cantankerous John Adams, bilious Arthur Lee, the bumbling British, the fascinating French and the double-dealing Dutch. Presented in association with the Warrenville Historical Society. Refreshments served at 6:30 p.m. Registration is required.
