An Afternoon with Nina Roosevelt Gibson at Val-Kill

November 04, 2023 @ 2:00pm - 4:30pm

Growing Up Roosevelt gives an intimate picture of life at Val-Kill as well as Nina’s wide-ranging experiences traveling as a teenager with her grandmother. Included are portraits of the family, staff, famous friends, people in need, and world leaders as disparate as Nikita Khrushchev, Haile Selassie, and John F. Kennedy. This book will appeal to anyone interested in the life and times of Eleanor Roosevelt, her work as a trailblazing political and feminist leader, and the intimate behind-the-scenes details that only her granddaughter can tell.

This is an extraordinary opportunity to connect with the Roosevelt legacy on a personal level and gain insights that can only come from someone who shared such intimate moments with Eleanor Roosevelt herself. Join us in November for a Q&A with the author in-person or via Zoom. Tea and refreshments will be served – ER style.
