Doris Kearns Goodwin
From Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream to No Ordinary Time to Team of Rivals, Goodwin has chronicled some of the pivotal moments of American history. In The Bully Pulpit (Simon & Schuster, $40) she looks back to 1908, when Theodore Roosevelt left office. Roosevelt was outraged when Taft pandered to big business—undoing all the work Roosevelt and the nation’s muckraking journalists had done to clean things up. Goodwin tells a great story, and traces its lasting political consequences. Goodwin will be in conversation with Steve Inskeep host of NPR's Morning Edition. This event is part of The Newsmakers Series, co-sponsored with GW Lisner.
