Book Group Meeting #4: "Leadership in Turbulent Times" by Doris Kearns Goodwin
Tuesday, March 24, 6:00 PM, at the Depot
The Lexington Historical Society Book Group meets five times each year, and new members are always welcome!
Our next book is the latest release from acclaimed local historian and author Doris Kearns Goodwin. Exploring how great leaders are created through a history of dealing with conflict, Goodwin follows four American presidents: Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, and Lyndon Johnson, throughout their lives, culminating in the national crises they dealt with during their time in the White House. Coming from a variety of backgrounds, these men rose to the challenge of leading a nation with grit, determination, and mediation. The New York Times notes, "We can benefit from reminders that even flawed mortals can, in times of national emergency, achieve great things. We can only hope that a few of Goodwin’s many readers will find in her subjects’ examples a margin of inspiration and a resolve to steer the country to a better place.”
Includes catered dinner from Neillio's.
