Wednesday January 27, 2021 2:00 pm

Eleanor Roosevelt was called the First Lady of the World by Harry Truman.  It was a title befitting of such an amazing woman.  She defined the role of First Lady, but what she did in the years after her husbands Presidency defines her as well.  She spent the remaining years of her life at her home Val Kill in Hyde park.  We will explore her home together and share some stories about her life there and her accomplishments around the world.
