My Day: The Best of Eleanor Roosevelt's Acclaimed Newspaper Columns, 1936 - 1962
2012 is the 50th anniversary of Eleanor Roosevelt's death. Named "Woman of the Century" by the National Women's Hall of Fame, Eleanor Roosevelt wrote her hugely popular syndicated column "My Day" from 1936 to 1962 with hardly a week's interruption. This collection brings together for the first time in a single volume the very best of those columns, written with singular wit, elegance, compassion and insight -- everything from her personal perspectives on the New Deal and World War II to the painstaking diplomacy required of her as chair on the United Nations Committee on Human Rights after the war to the joys of gardening at her beloved Hyde Park home.
Eleanor Roosevelt "...was an unsurpassed and cherished communicator of America's best values." Biographer Blanche Wiesen Cook, in the Introduction
