An Evening with Eleanor Roosevelt

Join author and historian Carol Cohen for a look into the life of Eleanor Roosevelt.  During this presentation, meet Eleanor Roosevelt at her home, learn about her role as a human rights activist, and inspect many primary sources that were very much a part of Eleanor Roosevelt’s personal and professional life.

Cohen’s presentation is both interesting and interactive focusing on Eleanor after the death of Franklin, when she is living at Val Kill on her own. This program is part portrayal and part presentation. 

Carol Cohen currently works at Lesley University and is a published historian and playwright. She owns an educational consulting company and is currently writing the book “Begin with a Box.”
