About the Author/Artist

Eleanor Roosevelt is the third Living History developed by scholar and actress, Susan Marie Frontczak. To date, Susan Marie has given over 700 living history presentations as Marie Curie, Mary Shelley, Irene Castle, Clara Barton, and Eleanor Roosevelt across 38 of the United States, Canada, and Europe.

Susan Marie’s motto is, “Give me a place to stand, and I will take you somewhere else.” Calling herself the Storysmith®, she heats up, hammers, and crafts her stories with strong forces, before letting them cool into a tale worth sharing. Susan Marie finds Eleanor Roosevelt’s life almost too big to hold, and yet is convinced this first lady’s story has a great deal to offer the world today. She says, “In times of strife, we must look to our heroes and heroines. Not only did they pave the way for where we are today, but their forgotten wisdom can guide us as we move forward.”
