Guest: Blanche Wiesen Cook

We’ll talk with author BLANCHE WIESEN COOK about her new book Eleanor Roosevelt, The War Years and After 1939-1962. The biography is the third and final volume, taking the reader through World War II, FDR’s death, the founding of the UN, and Eleanor Roosevelt’s death in 1962. The book portrays Roosevelt as a modest and self-deprecating woman whose experiences during the war years shaped her into a visionary and role model for generations to come.
