In conversation with Jim Falk 

Location: Moody Performance Hall

Presented in partnership with Gail Koppman Lecture Series at the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth 

An Unfinished Love Story: A Personal History of the 1960s, by Doris Kearns Goodwin, one of America’s most beloved historians, artfully weaves together biography, memoir, and history to portray the emotional journey she and her husband, Richard (Dick) Goodwin, embarked upon in the last years of his life.  

The last great adventure of their 42-year marriage involved sifting through more than 300 boxes of letters, diaries, documents, and memorabilia, an unparalleled personal time capsule of the 1960s. This project imbued Dick’s final days with a sense of purpose and afforded them an opportunity to make fresh assessments of the central figures of the time—John F. Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Robert Kennedy, Eugene McCarthy, and especially Lyndon Johnson, who greatly impacted both their lives.  

Doris Kearns Goodwin’s work for President Johnson launched her career as a presidential historian. Her first book was Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream. She followed that up with the Pulitzer Prize–winning No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt: The Homefront in World War II. She earned the Lincoln Prize for Team of Rivals, in part the basis for Steven Spielberg’s film Lincoln, and the Carnegie Medal for The Bully Pulpit, about the friendship between Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft. Her last book, Leadership in Turbulent Times, was the inspiration for the History Channel docuseries on Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, and Franklin Roosevelt, which she executive produced.

Doris will be available to sign copies of An Unfinished Love Story from 5:15-6:00 p.m. as well as immediately following the event.

The event does not have a virtual option.
