Jessica Michna will give her portrayal of Eleanor Roosevelt, the vibrant woman who served as our First Lady during World War 2.

Eleanor Roosevelt 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. She is best summed up by President Harry S. Truman, who dubbed her "The First Lady of the World."
