Host Jim Paymar interviews Doris Kearns Goodwin about growing up on Long Island, how it has informed her work, her books, movies and her upcoming book on Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft out on Nov 5th.

Jim Paymar interviews Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin, a native Long Islander who grew up in Rockville Center and graduated from South Side High School. Goodwin shares how growing up on Long Island influenced her best-selling memoir “Wait Till Next Year” and ignited her passion for American political history; her book “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln” became the basis for Steven Spielberg’s 2012 Academy Award-winning film “Lincoln.” She also details her experiences while penning her next book, “The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism.”
