Doris Kearns Goodwin is a world renowned presidential historian, Pulitzer Prize winning author of best-selling history books, and frequent, and perhaps the most knowledgeable commentator on current political events. She worked with Steven Spielberg on the Academy Award winning movie Lincoln, which was based in part on her award-winning book Team of Rivals. An avid Boston Red Sox fan, Goodwin was the first woman journalist allowed in the Red Sox locker room.
