The Newbury Vets Hall
Join us as we welcome
Michele Albion, the author of The Quotable Eleanor Roosevelt! We will spend a fascinating evening exploring
the life of a very remarkable woman! Born
in the late 1800s to one of the wealthiest families in New York City, Eleanor
Roosevelt seemed destined for a traditional woman’s role within a sedate
Victorian life. Instead, she married her fifth cousin and was flung into the
highest levels of American politics, culminating in Franklin’s unprecedented
While previous first ladies refrained from public discussion of their personal
views, Eleanor’s bold opinions on political, social, and racial issues took
many by surprise. She held press conferences and wrote a syndicated column. She
spoke at national conventions, granted interviews, and often made appearances
on her husband’s behalf. Her own influence lasted years beyond his death. She
advocated for human rights, worked with the United Nations, and supported what
later became the civil rights movement.
Copies of all 5 of
Michele’s books will be available for sale!
