Chappaqua Library Online Author Talk: “Eleanor” by David Michaelis
December 14, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
In the first single-volume cradle-to-grave portrait in six decades, acclaimed biographer and NYTimes best selling author David Michaelis delivers a stunning account of Eleanor Roosevelt’s remarkable life of transformation. An orphaned niece of President Theodore Roosevelt, she converted her Gilded Age childhood of denial and secrecy into an irreconcilable marriage with her ambitious fifth cousin Franklin. Despite their inability to make each other happy, Franklin Roosevelt transformed Eleanor from a settlement house volunteer on New York’s Lower East Side into a matching partner in New York’s most important power couple in a generation.
