George Shinn Event Center

Doris Kearns Goodwin

Please join the College of Leadership and Public Service for our annual Don R. Elliott Distinguished Presidential Lecture Series and spend an evening with author Doris Kearns Goodwin, presidential historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author. 

Please RSVP if you plan to attend 



World-renowned presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin reflects on more than 150 years of U.S. history to put into context our most recent unprecedented presidency – a fast-paced, unpredictable and at times impulsive Administration. By sharing her deep understanding of the ambition, resolution and resilience of some of our nation’s most revered presidents, Goodwin explains how past setbacks and triumphs shed light on the cultural, economic and political transformations that define today’s turbulent times. With a goal of educating and entertaining audiences, Goodwin brings to life some of our most successful presidents to provide insight for today’s leaders, and to demonstrate that however fractured our modern political culture has become, our democracy is also resilient and has survived – even thrived – through more troubling times in the past.
