Welcome to Way Public Library
The next Reel Opinions with WGTE Public Media will be on Thursday, September 18th at 10:30am and you are invited. Join us for a free showing of “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History" and participate in a small group discussion on the documentary.
“The Roosevelts: An Intimate History," the new, seven-part documentary by Ken Burns, weaves the stories of Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt into a single narrative. The series encompasses all the history the Roosevelts helped to make- the creation of National Parks and the digging of the Panama Canal, the New Deal and the defeat of Hitler, and the postwar struggles for civil rights at home and around the world, in which Eleanor Roosevelt played a central role. But it is also an intimate human story about love and betrayal, personal courage and the conquest of fear. Join us for a peek at this gripping new series.
This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.
