Christopher C. Gorham - The Confidante: The Untold Story of the Woman Who Helped Win WWII and Shape Modern America

Anna M. Rosenberg played vital roles advising presidents through the Depression, World War II, the Korean War, the Civil Rights movement, the Great Society, and more. Today, Anna Rosenberg is mostly unknown.

Nevertheless, the story of this 'pint-sized hurricane' is a remarkable one. It is told in an engaging, dramatic manner that allows the author to convey the dynamism, energy, and determination Anna Rosenberg gave to all her activities, as well as the gratitude she felt towards her adopted country.

Presented as a part of the Unsung SHEroes of History series, a celebration of American women whose contributions to history have gone unrecognized through the passage of time.

In partnership with the Simon Family JCC’s Lee & Bernard Jaffe Family Jewish Book Festival and the Institute for Jewish Studies and Interfaith Understanding at Old Dominion University, and ODU’s Department of Women’s and Gender Studies.
