Doris Kearns Goodwin and Mike Barnicle

What does it take to be a true leader in moments of crisis?

Pulitzer Prize winner Doris Kearns Goodwin, “America’s historian-in-chief” (New York), tackles this essential question in her new book, Leadership in Turbulent Times, the culmination of five decades of work in presidential history. By examining critical lessons from Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, FDR and LBJ, Goodwin shows us how our greatest commanders in chief navigated some of the nation’s gravest challenges. Join this eminent chronicler of America’s past for a look at how we’ve overcome huge adversity—and what we must do to improve today’s polarized word.
