"Strength, Courage and Confidence"
Linda's program and
portrayal captures the essence of this dynamic First Lady and modern
woman. Highlights covered include:
Courtship & Marriage
Campobello and Warm Springs
The White House Years
"First Lady of the World"
For more than 15 years, Linda has been active
in northeast Ohio’s community theater activities. Her interest
in Eleanor Roosevelt has inspired her to make a
wide-ranging study of the First Lady’s life and times. Linda’s
personal travels abroad and years of working with the public
translate into an empathetic portrayal of Eleanor’s role as a
politician’s wife, ambassador, and champion of the less fortunate.
Linda recently joined the “We Made
History” troupe of characters and hopes to educate others about one
of the world’s most admired – yet controversial – women.
What People Say about Eleanor
Perry Library performance a patron declared, “You
“A Conversation with Eleanor & Lucretia”
These two educated, intelligent women also examine their early
self-esteem issues and how they grew beyond them into strong,
independent, and formidable widows. One becomes the “vanishing
First Lady” (or does she?) while the other transforms into “First
Lady of the World.”
Two American women – from different generations – sharing their
differences and commonalities. Eleanor Roosevelt and
Lucretia Garfield meet over tea and discuss their paths to the
White House and beyond. You will be surprised about the
experiences they had in common. Discover how they dealt
with troublesome, and possibly terminating, marriage
difficulties. Hear them expound on interesting topics such
as mothers-in-law, children, and politics.
Join us for a conversation that was never in your history books.
It’s also a perfect way to celebrate Women’s History Month!
