A brilliant storyteller, Doris Kearns Goodwin makes sense of the people and events of today by illustrating lessons learned from history and the country's greatest leaders. This former Harvard professor, historian and biographer was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 1995 for her best-seller No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt: The American Homefront During World War II.
She has also written best-sellers about the presidencies of Kennedy and LBJ, Wait Till Next Year, tells of her experiences growing up in the 1950s as a die-hard Dodgers fan and her most recent work, Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln which instantly made the best-sellers lists.
