BEN FRANKLIN CIRCLES: April Meeting on 'Sincerity'

  • SoHo Places 435 Broome Street New York, NY, 10013 United States (map)

Ben Franklin Circles are monthly salons that explore how we can improve oursleves and our community.

Bringing people together, face-to-face, to improve ourselves and the world around us — Ben Franklin Circles meet regularly, using Ben Franklin’s classic 13 virtues to spark discussion about members’ goals and aspirations — who they want to be, and what they want to contribute to the world.

Join us for our April conversation on the topic of 'sincerity.' We will explore how to listen, communicate and live sincerely and ask what role the concept plays in today's society. 

About the Ben Franklin Circles

When you think of Ben Franklin, most people think of Founding Father, inventor, and the $100 bill. Franklin was also a self-improvement junkie. He lived his life according the 13 virtues that he tracked daily in a little notebook that he carried around with him everywhere. He also formed a mutual improvement club that he called the Junto. This group met weekly at the pub to talk about improving themselves and improving the world. This group went on to create many civic innovations that we take for granted – the public library, the post office, and the volunteer fire department.
