MEET ELEANOR ROOSEVELT
performed by Kathie Dice
The second program in our OHIO WOMEN THEN AND NOW series took place on Thursday, March 13 at the East Campus of Cuyahoga Community College. Kathy Dice brought Eleanor Roosevelt to life. The audience spent time after the performance chatting about Eleanor in more detail and enjoying refreshments.
What if Eleanor
Roosevelt got 'tweets', or text messages? How did she REALLY feel about
Franklin's dalliance with HER social secretary? Where was she when Franklin
died? Get the answers to these questions and more with this all new
first person portrayal of this incredible woman. What would it be like
if she "came back from the other side" to tell us her story.
