A Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian will be speaking to students and guests at SMU tomorrow. Doris Kearns Goodwin will be the keynote speaker as part of the Willis M. Tate Lecture Series.
The Lecture Series features a student forum at 4:30 p.m. in the Hughes-Trigg Student Center Ballroom as well as a sold-out evening lecture at 8 p.m. in McFarlin Auditorium. Bill McKenzie, editorial director for the George W. Bush Institute, will be the evening’s moderator.
Goodwin has written six best-sellers, including her most recent work “The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism.” As well as serving as historical consultant for major documentaries and networks, Goodwin assisted President Johnson with his memoirs in his last year of presidency.
