Eleanor Roosevelt's Pursuit of Social Justice
With Author Ann Atkins
Monday, March 20, 10:30 a.m. 


March is Women's History Month, so we thought this a most appropriate time to learn more about the woman once called “the first lady of the world” - Eleanor Roosevelt. 

Presenter Ann Atkins is the author of “Eleanor Roosevelt-Unleashed, A Life of Soul Searching and Self Discovery”. She will share the themes of Eleanor’s life:  justice, leadership and social responsibility.  Ann weaves together Eleanor Roosevelt’s personal struggles and public life on the journey to becoming a champion for human rights. 

Ann Atkins has a vast breadth of knowledge of courageous women. She is also the author of “Golda Meir-True Grit” and “Marie Curie-A Nobel Life”.  She has appeared at the National Press Club, and presented at universities and civic associations. Penn's Village is grateful that Ann is a neighbor. 

We will meet in the MacColl Room of the First Presbyterian Church, 201 S. 21st Street, entrance on 21st Street. The building is handicapped accessible. Kindly let us know in advance if this is needed. 

RSVP by emailing info@pennsvillage.org or calling 215-925-7333.

There is no charge for Penn’s Village members and volunteers.  We would appreciate a $5 donation from other guests.
