Discover the path that led her on the journey to her marriage to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, to a mother of six children, to the White House, where she will tell you of her work during WWII. She will share with you how she gained the confidence to step out of the traditional role of women and how she faced her fears, celebrated her joys, and grew from her struggles as a daughter, a wife, a mother and a friend.
