Our Cabin BOOK CLUB also collaborates with the 92Y (The 92nd Street Y in New York City) as a BEN FRANKLIN CIRCLE. We support their initiative to promote the “13 Virtues of Ben Franklin” – Temperance, Silence, Order, Resolution, Frugality, Industry, Sincerity, Justice, Moderation, Cleanliness, Chastity, Tranquillity and Humility originally conceived in 1724. At the close of each BOOK CLUB discussion, we identify which “Virtues” are relevant to the Book Selection.
