"Leadership: In Turbulent Times" By Doris Kearns Goodwin

Sep 18, 2018

Author, historian and Pulitzer Prize-winner Doris Kearns Goodwin has a new book out today and will be in our region later this month for a pair of events to discuss her latest work, "Leadership: In Turbulent Times."

The book chronicles the journeys of four of our nation’s presidents: Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson. Through those histories, Goodwin explores questions of natural leadership ability versus developed ability; the relationship between ambition and adversity on leader ship growth; and how leaders both perceive themselves and are perceived by others.

Goodwin will be at the FDR Presidential Library in Hyde Park this Saturday at 3 p.m. On September 29 she will be speaking at the Albany Book Festival at the University of Albany and later in the day she will be at the Maple Street School for a Northshire Bookstore event in Manchester Center Vermont at 6 p.m.
