One-man show brings Teddy Roosevelt to life at Solana Beach library


Joe Wiegand is regarded as the nation’s premier interpreter of Theodore Roosevelt, having entertained audiences at the White House and nationwide. Join him as he entertains at the Solana Beach Library’s Friends Night Out at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 16, in the library.

Enjoy T.R.’s adventures as rancher, Rough Rider and father of six in the White House. Relive the establishment of America’s great National Parks, Forests, Monuments and Wildlife Reserves.

Hear the amazing stories of the frail young boy who built up his body and dedicated himself to the “vigorous life” and the “Square Deal.”

From bear hunts to the Panama Canal, from Africa to the Amazon, T.R.’s delightful stories come to life.

Attendees are encouraged to take pictures and video. For information, go to Weigand and his family are new residents of Solana Beach.
