On the eve of the 2018 Midterms, world-renowned presidential historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin will share her seventh and latest book, “Leadership in Turbulent Times,” at a National Press Club Headliners Luncheon, Monday, November 5.

In “Leadership in Turbulent Times,” Goodwin revisits the four presidents she has studied most closely – Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Lyndon B. Johnson – to explore the shared traits, values, and abilities that afforded each of these men the opportunity to sit in the country’s highest office, and provide a modern-day road map for the leaders of the future.

Lunch will be served in the Club’s Ballroom at 12:30 p.m., with remarks beginning at 1:00 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session ending at 2:00 p.m. Goodwin will sign copies of her book after the program concludes. Tickets are $25 for Press Club members (Club members may purchase two tickets at this price) and $39 for the general public.

About the Author:
Doris Kearns Goodwin’s fascination with leadership and the study of presidential history began when she was selected to join the White House Fellows as a 24-year-old graduate student at Harvard. After working for President Johnson in the White House and later assisting with his memoirs, Goodwin penned her first bestselling book “Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream.” Goodwin followed with her Pulitzer Prize-winning “No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt: The Home Front in World War II.” Goodwin also authored her bestselling memoir “Wait Till Next Year,” “The Fitzgeralds and the Kennedys: An American Saga,” New York Times bestselling “The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and the Golden Age of Journalism,” and the award-winning “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln.” Goodwin graduated magna cum laude from Colby College and earned a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Government from Harvard University, where she taught Government, including a course on the American Presidency.
