The Brookings Public Library continues the A Life Explored (ALE) series which examines in depth the life of one individual. The 2015 ALE individual is Eleanor Roosevelt. Programs about her life will be featured from February to April.
The exploration of Mrs. Roosevelt’s life will conclude on Thursday, April 9 at 7:00 pm as scholar/presenter Susan Marie Frontczak presents a re-enactment entitled “What We Are Fighting For” - Eleanor Roosevelt during World War II.
It is December, 1942. Mrs. Roosevelt has just returned from England where she visited with soldiers, generals, royalty, and the working people. Find out how the First Lady feels about the individual’s role in a world torn by war, hardship, and uncertainty.
This one-hour program consists of a 40-45 minute monologue in-character, followed first by a question and answer period with "Eleanor Roosevelt" and then by question and answer period with the scholar/presenter, Susan Marie Frontczak.
