Friends of Robbins Library present: “Truly Eleanor” with the Delvena Theatre Company
May 8, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Here in this 3-person, live performance, Eleanor shares some of her most private and meaningful moments – her lonely childhood; her joyous courtship/marriage with her fifth cousin, Franklin; her devastation at Franklin’s love affair with her social secretary; her resolve to make him president after his polio diagnosis; her involvement in his presidency; and her eventual triumph at the United Nations. “Truly Eleanor” takes a candid look at our greatest First Lady’s courage and at her great contributions to human rights and liberty for all. This event is free and open to the public.
