Rene Goodwin as Eleanor Roosevelt
The Cultural Arts Forum at Neumann University will host a historical interpretation by Rene Goodwin of the life of Eleanor Roosevelt on Thursday, October 14, at 1:30 p.m. in the Fred P. Meagher Theatre in the Thomas A. Bruder Jr. Life Center.
Eleanor Roosevelt possessed a certain zest for life, even though her own was touched by much pain and personal disappointment. One of her quotes, “Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life,” showed her spirit about life. She embraced the cause of equality for people of all nations and became known as “the First Lady of the World.”
A BMI recording artist and a voice teacher, Rene Goodwin has toured throughout the Eastern United States and was a featured artist in Japan. Goodwin studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts and performed in musical and dramatic productions. Her passionate interest in Roosevelt inspired her to study and explore her life. In this program, Goodwin covers the first 55 years of Roosevelt’s life-including her political climb-and focuses on her as a woman.
General admission is $7 and free for Cultural Arts Forum members and Neumann students with ID. For more information or to reserve tickets, contact the Office of Cultural Programming at 610-558-5626.
