Doris Kearns Goodwin
Featuring Pulitzer Prize‑winning historian Doris Kearns Goodwin
Doris Kearns Goodwin is a Pulitzer Prize-winning author who has chronicled the lives of numerous U.S. presidents. She is frequently seen as a commentator on television networks NBC, MSNBC, CBS, FOX, and CNN, as well as The Charlie Rose Show and Meet the Press.
Her book Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln was recently adapted by Steven Spielberg into the Academy Award-nominated film Lincoln.
