This is a book written by a local author. Looks very intriguing! Check it out!


Tom Reed is an Applied Physicist working on a project he developed for the military. While the original idea was to instantly transport military equipment from place to place, he realized it could also be used to transport people and things in time. He developed a way to bring historical figures from the past into present day without disturbing their lives in the past. When Tom activates this transport, he finds himself sitting across from our favorite kite-flying Founding Father.We have all either thought or heard the phrase “What would the Founders think if they were alive today?” Well, we find out in My Name Is Ben. Over the period of several days, Tom and his colleagues acquaint our most famous scientist to the wonders, and the disappointments, of what has become of America since our Constitution was signed in 1787. As much as he is amazed at the technological advances, he is disappointed in some of the social and political issues that we, as Americans, face every day. Franklin, not one to sit idly by and watch, eventually finds himself to the Oval Office and the halls of Congress, where he has some things to say. Join Tom, his wife, and his colleagues as they usher an astounded Founding Father into present day America, and discover some things themselves along the way.
