Some of us have too much of this world’s goods, she wrote and we are thereby separated too widely from each other," said Eleanor Roosevelt, the subject of Blanche Wiesen Cook's new three-volume biography of the First Lady.

Plus, a documentary by filmmaker Ross Watne on Arthurdale, the experimental community championed by Eleanor Roosevelt in post-depression West-Virginia.
