Doris Kearns Goodwin’s extensive career began with a critical article about President Lyndon Johnson in “New Republic magazine,” which attracted his attention.

He hired her to work at the White House and to eventually assist in writing his memoirs.

Her first book, “Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream” was published in 1976, followed by “The Fitzgeralds and the Kennedys” in 1987, and in 1995 she won a Pulitzer for her biography, “No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt: The Home Front in World War II.”

Her new book is a biography titled “Team of Rival: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln.” She followed this with an acclaimed autobiography titled “Wait Till Next Year: A Memoir.”

Publications such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and The Boston Globe commend Goodwin, also an NBC-TV news analyst, for her works.

She will speak at the Flint Center in Cupertino this Wednesday through Dec. 2.
