Starting with Joseph Lash's Eleanor and Franklin, Eleanor Roosevelt has been the subject of numerous biographies over the decades since her death. Her important influence on the world of 20th century politics is beyond doubt, but what was she like to those who knew her as a mother and grandmother? Her great-granddaughter, Anna Eleanor Fierst, will delve into the influences that shaped both Eleanor and her direct descendants. She will also explore the topic of how Mrs. Roosevelt's legacy continues to be relevant by examining the last book she wrote just before her death in 1962. Mrs. Fierst is the daughter of Eleanor Roosevelt Seagraves who was ER's and FDR's oldest grandchild.
