Silent Connections Presentation

We’re happy to bring you another Oakland University/OPC partnership as we present Silent Connections: “Meta Glass, Eleanor Roosevelt and Me,” on Monday, November 25 from 3:00 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.

Andrea Eis is returning to the OPC to continue sharing her dialogue with an American woman, Meta Glass who received her Ph.D. from Columbia University in 1912. Andrea’s talk will explore Glass’ powerful family history, from her immediate family of strong public and political figures to ancestors as far back as the 1300s. She will then present a 1947 letter from Eleanor Roosevelt to Harry Truman that offers up a different impression on Andrea’s silent companion.

The cost for this presentation is $5, is open to the public, and you do not need to be a member to attend. Pre-purchase your ticket at OPC or call, 248-608-0251, M-F 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. The Older Persons Commission is located on 650 Letica in Rochester.
