Mid-Missourians will get a chance to meet a First Lady right out of history April 24 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. While she’s only a facsimile, renowned Eleanor Roosevelt impersonator Jessica Michna will bring her dramatic presentation of anecdotes, “First Lady of the World,” to Westminster College.
Part of the National Churchill Museum’s ongoing efforts to present Churchill-era history in a unique, tangible way, Michna's production will be free admission, though the museum encourages interested patrons to make reservations ahead of time.
“First Lady of the World” will follow Roosevelt’s life, from her tragic beginnings as a young orphan to her renowned years as a humanitarian, civil rights leader, author and wife of our 32nd President, Franklin D. Roosevelt. Michna is set to take questions from spectators afterward.
