A visit from Eleanor Roosevelt

Thursday, June 27 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Dramatic event; all ages welcome.

After an unhappy childhood during which she lost her parents and brother, Eleanor figured out how to make a difference. She became an American politician. The longest-serving First Lady of the United States, she was the first presidential spouse to hold press conferences, write a syndicated newspaper column, and speak at a national convention. She advocated for expanded roles for women in the workplace; the civil rights of African and Asian Americans, and the rights of World War II refugees. She became one of the first delegates to the United Nations and was named one of the top 10 most admired people of the 20th century.

About the actor: Sheryl attended Emerson College, where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting. Since then   she has traveled across the United States to perform. She has been the voice for several characters for Sony Play Station games and for a variety of medical CD ROMS. She keeps busy working on films, television and theater throughout Boston and New York.
