About this event:
Doris Kearns Goodwin's newest book is titled The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism. Chicago Public Library is pleased to welcome this acclaimed historian.
After Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln, Goodwin wields her magic on another larger-than-life president, and another momentous and raucous American time period as she brings Theodore Roosevelt, the muckraking journalists and the Progressive Era to life.
Like Goodwin’s chronicles of the Civil War and the Great Depression, The Bully Pulpit describes a time in our history that enlightened and changed the country, ushered in the modern age and produced some unforgettable men and women.
Doris Kearns Goodwin is the author of the runaway bestseller Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln. She won the Pulitzer Prize in history for No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt: The Home Front in World War II and is also the author of the bestsellers Wait Till Next Year, The Fitzgeralds and the Kennedys, and Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream.
