Tea with Eleanor Roosevelt: Snow Date

The tea with Eleanor Roosevelt will be held this day, if cancelled due to snow on Jan. 15.

Join us for an "Afternoon with Eleanor Roosevelt," featuring author and historian Carol Cohen.  During this presentation that looks into the life of Eleanor Roosevelt, you'll meet 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 Roosevelt's personal and professional life.  Cohen's interactive presentation focuses on Roosevelt after the death of her husband, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, when she was living at Val Kill on her own.  The program is part portrayal and part presentation.

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."

Registration is required to help us plan refreshments for the tea.
