An Evening with Doris Kearns Goodwin

Wednesday, September 28, 2016
7 p.m. • The Agnes Irwin School, Main Gymnasium


Save the date for an evening with Doris Kearns Goodwin, a world-renowned presidential historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author.

Goodwin is the author of six critically acclaimed and New York Times best-selling books, including her most recent, The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism (November, 2013). Winner of the Carnegie Medal, The Bully Pulpit is a dynamic history of the first decade of the Progressive era, that tumultuous time when the nation was coming unseamed and reform was in the air. Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks Studios has acquired the film rights to the book.

Goodwin was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in history for No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt: The Home Front in World War II, and is the author of the best sellers Wait Till Next Year, Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream and The Fitzgeralds and the Kennedys, which was adapted into an award-winning five-part TV miniseries. Join parents and community members from The Agnes Irwin School to hear America's "historian-in-chief" shed light on the tumultuous 2016 U.S. election season.

Sponsored by the Lily Foundation and the Class of 1957 Speakers Fund.
