The EGVPL presents...

The Woman Behind the Teddy Bear

with Anette Isaacs

Today is National Teddy Bear Day!


Thursday, September 9 via Zoom

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm 


Today is National Teddy Bear Day! What better way to honor it than by learning more about Its creator, Margarete Steiff!

It is common knowledge that President Theodore Roosevelt, who died 100 years ago this year, was the namesake of the world-famous Teddy Bear. Hardly anyone knows, though, that the cuddly stuffed animals were invented by an amazing woman from Southern Germany. Margarete Steiff overcame terrible sickness and incredible challenges but still turned her tiny workshop into one of the most recognizable international brands in the male-dominated world of the 19th century! Join German historian Anette Isaacs as she relates the truly awe-inspiring life of toymaker and business maven Margarete Steiff!
