In this talk based on her recent bestseller, renowned presidential historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin offers an essential roadmap for aspiring and established leaders in every field. Leadership in Troubled Times is a culmination of her five-decade career studying the American presidents, focusing on Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson.

Her remarks will offer context for our turbulent times and show how today’s leaders can and should learn from the triumphs and mistakes of the past. Well known for her appearances and commentary on television, Goodwin is seen frequently on all the major television and cable networks and shows, including Meet the Press and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning movie Lincoln was based on Goodwin’s award-winning Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln.

Goodwin has served as a consultant and has been interviewed extensively for PBS and History Channel’s documentaries on Presidents Johnson, Roosevelt and Lincoln, the Kennedy family, and on Ken Burns’ The History of Baseball and The Roosevelts: An Intimate History.

“A giant on the history and biography shelves.”
