Where: DeForest Area Community & Senior Center

When: Tuesday, September 28 at 10:00 am


Eleanor Roosevelt, as portrayed by Jessica Michna, shares with the audience her tragedies and triumphs. Born into the opulent wealth of America’s “Golden Age” she would grow from the shy, homely orphan into a confident, driven woman.

Annealed by personal tragedy, she would emerge as a champion of civil rights, author, and stateswoman.

Eleanor has been characterized by many as our most respected First Lady. She is best summed up by President Harry S. Truman, who dubbed her “The First Lady of the World.”

Co-sponsored by the DeForest Area Community & Senior Center, the DeForest Area Historical Society, and the DeForest Area Public Library.
