Event Description

Beloved First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt had a spirit author Leslie Kimmelman captures well in her book Hot Dog: Eleanor Roosevelt Throws a Picnic.

The story take readers back to the year 1939 when King George and Queen Elizabeth visited America—the first trip ever by reigning British monarchs. Leslie will read her tender and humorous book, then follow up with an activity that helps young readers understand the historical importance of such an event. Light picnic fare will be served.

The significance of Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt on New York's history and heritage is not lost on author Leslie Kimmelman, shown at the Hyde Park National Site, once the Roosevelt family home.
