Theodore Roosevelt: Rough Rider President

Sunday, November 19, 2017

Teddy Roosevelt comes to life at IPL!

See Teddy Roosevelt comes to life at the Independence Public Library! Historical re-enactor Darrel Draper will portray the 26th President of the United States in an educational and entertaining costumed program at 2:00 pm in the Community Room.

Roosevelt was famous for his energetic personality, his range of interest, his model of masculinity, and his “cowboy” image. His achievements as a naturalist, explorer, hunter, author, and soldier are as much a part of his fame as the many political offices he held. Draper’s performance includes audience participation and is open to all ages. For more information, stop in or call the library at 319-334-2470.
