Ben Franklin's Sister

Jill Lepore's latest is a biography of Jane Franklin, the sister of Ben.  Over at The New Yorker, Lepore writes about why she chose this topic and what she has learned from the project.  (Most of the material in this article devoted to Jane Franklin is behind the pay wall.  If you are not a subscriber to The New Yorker you can get a taste of the project from this podcast).
