Doris K Goodwin

Doris Kearns Goodwin's interest in leadership dates back to her time as a Harvard professor more than half a century ago. Her time working for Lyndon B. Johnson was a learning experience for her. Her work with Johnson in the White House and later on his memoirs led to the publication of her best-selling Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream. She followed up with No Ordinary Time: Franklin & Eleanor Roosevelt: The Home Front in World War Two, which won the Pulitzer Prize. She won the Lincoln Prize for the New York Times bestselling novel Team of Rivals, which served as the inspiration for Steven Spielberg's Academy Award-winning film Lincoln, and the Carnegie Medal for The Bully Pulpit, a New York Times bestselling account of Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft's friendship.

She is a Concord, Massachusetts resident. DorisKearnsGoodwin.com and @DorisKGoodwin are her websites and Twitter handles.
