What does 'rapt' below mean?

Ms. Walls, 60, who is white, was there with her 16-year-old grandson, rapt. Ms. Green, 45, who is black, stayed away from a president she dislikes so much that she grabs the remote whenever he appears on television.

I had to find the article. It's about two coworkers who feel very differently about the political situation. Trump came to their town and Ms. Walls went to watch him with her grandson, and she likes him very much so she was rapt (listened completely fascinated and interested in what he said.) while Ms. Green didn't even go because she can't stand him.
