Jill Lepore will deliver the Harry Camp Memorial Lecture for 2013-14.
Benjamin Franklin famously wrote the story of his life, the story of a printer's apprentice who runs away to become a statesman and a scientist. In this illustrated lecture, Lepore tells the story of Franklin's long-forgotten sister, Jane, and meditates on what it means to write history not from what can be found, but from what has been lost.
Lepore is a contributing staff writer at The New Yorker, and Professor of American History at Harvard University.
