The keynote speaker will be world-renowned presidential historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin, and her presentation is entitled, “Leadership in Turbulent Times.” Goodwin is the author of six New York Times best-selling books, including her most recent, The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism. Goodwin was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in history for No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt: The Home Front in World War II. Goodwin was consulted and interviewed extensively for PBS and HISTORY's documentaries on Presidents Lyndon B. Johnson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, the Kennedy family, and on Ken Burns’ The History of Baseball, and The Roosevelts: An Intimate History. The Steven Spielberg film Lincoln was partly based on Goodwin’s award-winning Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln. Goodwin’s next book will focus on presidential leadership, incorporating her five decades studying Lincoln, Johnson, Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin D. Roosevelt. Goodwin's experience at age 24 working as an assistant for President Johnson, and later assisting him in his memoirs, sparked her interest in becoming a presidential historian and author.
Although NCSBN regrets that we will be unable to see each other in person, we are working to ensure that this year's Annual Meeting is interactive and engaging.
