What Would Ben Franklin Say?

Bob Stark loves portraying Dr. Ben Franklin.

He'll do so again Sunday, Sept. 8, at the Saline District Library in the Brecon Room, as part of the Saline Area Historical Society's educational series.

Stark can portray Ben Franklin as an historian, an inventor, Ms Silence Dogood, a delegate to the 2nd Continental Congress, Richard Sanders (Poor Richard's Almanac) or ambassador to France. With the many hats that Mr. Franklin wore, he was comfortable with prince or pauper.

 Bob’s favorite program is 'Q & A'.  If someone has an interest, they usually have a question, and they are apt to engage and inquire. The answer will usually ignite a related question which will in turn lead to another answer and so on and so on. After 4 or 5 questions and answers he usually is 'off to the races'.

 So "What can the audience expect?" Engagement, because his desire is to engage with everyone that wants to engage.
