Program Description

Event Details

In honor of Women's History Month, join award-winning actress and scholar Leslie Goddard as she portrays Eleanor Roosevelt, one of the most fascinating and influential public figures of the twentieth century. Born into wealth during America’s Gilded Age, Eleanor grew from a shy, homely orphan into a confident, driven woman who championed progressive causes and the rights of man. Drawn from Eleanor’s own letters, diaries, newspaper columns, and other writings, this thoroughly researched and engaging performance captures the warm, honest, and passionate American first lady and stateswoman. Co-sponsored by the City of Wheaton Community Relations Commission and the Wheaton League of Women Voters
