Doris Kearns Goodwin

Leadership in Turbulent Times

Friday, January 24, 7:00pm





Leadership Cover

World renowned presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin returns to Newport Beach to reflect on more than 150 years of US History, putting into context our most recent unprecedented presidency. Goodwin draws upon research from her most recent book Leadership in Turbulent Times (2018) which is a culmination of Goodwin’s five-decade long career studying American presidents. 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.  We are honored this Pulitzer Prize winning author will, once again, share her wisdom on this important topic.
