Benjamin Franklin: Printer

The Artisan Origins of The Most Innovative Founding Father​
With Professor Rob Martello, PhD, Olin College of Engineering

Waterstone at Wellesley | River Room

The son of an artisan candlemaker, Ben Franklin grew to define polymath extraordinaire – but he was first a printer, and he proudly self-identified as such his entire life.

Join us to learn about young Franklin’s familial influences and how the power of his press helped shift America’s craft-centered paradigm toward a proto-industrial era.

Space is limited. Kindly RSVP at least two days prior to this event.
