Doris Kearns Goodwin

Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian

Doris Kearns Goodwin is a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, presidential historian, and political commentator.

Her interest in leadership began more than half a century ago as a professor at Harvard. Her experiences working for LBJ in the White House and later assisting him on his memoirs led to her bestselling Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream.

She followed up with the Pulitzer Prize–winning “No Ordinary Time: Franklin & Eleanor Roosevelt: The Home Front in World War II”.

Goodwin earned the Lincoln Prize for the runaway bestseller “Team of Rivals”, the basis for Steven Spielberg’s Academy Award-winning film “Lincoln”, and the Carnegie Medal for “The Bully Pulpit”, the New York Times bestselling chronicle of the friendship between Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft. 

Her new book “Leadership in Turbulent Times” is an instant New York Times bestseller.
