The Concord Bookshop Presents: Doris Kearns Goodwin presents “Leadership: In Turbulent Times”

October 14 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Please join us on Sunday, October 14 at 3pm, when Doris Kearns Goodwin presents her new work, Leadership: In Turbulent Times. The event will be held at Trinitarian Congregational Church (54 Walden Street) in Concord. Doors open at 2:15

This is a free ticketed event. Tickets will be distributed beginning at noon on Sunday, October 14, at the back desk of the Concord Bookshop (near Young Readers); limit two tickets per person.

We do expect the event venue to fill, and will announce on social media and signage on the Bookshop doors when all tickets have been distributed.

Every person attending the speaker program must have an admission ticket, which will also be used to enter the book-signing line following Ms. Goodwin’s talk.

If you wish to enter the book-signing line after the presentation, we ask that you please purchase your copy of Leadership from the Concord Bookshop, which will have books available at the program.

Doris Kearns Goodwin’s interest in leadership began more than half a century ago as a professor at Harvard. Her experiences working for LBJ in the White House and later assisting him on his memoirs led to her bestselling Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream. She followed up with the Pulitzer Prize–winning No Ordinary Time: Franklin & Eleanor Roosevelt: The Home Front in World War II. She earned the Lincoln Prize for the runaway bestseller Team of Rivals, the basis for Steven Spielberg’s Academy Award-winning film Lincoln, and the Carnegie Medal for The Bully Pulpit, the New York Times bestselling chronicle of the friendship between Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft. She lives in Concord.
