Book Review: ‘The Loyal Son’
Willamette View Terrace Auditorium
From: June 20, 2018 at 10:30am to: 11:30am
Willamette View resident Ron Gustafson reviews “The Loyal Son” by Daniel Mark Epstein. It is the dramatic story of a founding father, Ben Franklin, and his illegitimate son, and the tragedy of their conflict during the American Revolution. Benjamin Franklin's legendary image of a witty, charming, scientifically oriented inventor has obscured a scandal that dogged his life. This book spotlights one of the more enigmatic aspects of Franklin's biography: his complex and confounding relationship with his illegitimate son William.
