Ben Franklin Zine Workshop

Nashville Public Television works with young people to bring films like Ken Burns' BENJAMIN FRANKLIN to life. Students at Margret Allen Middle School work with local teaching artist and poet laureate Cameron Mitchell; Michael Lapinski, illustrator; and Tori Zemer from Hatch Show Print Shop to create a zine.
