Join us for a conversation and book signing with Richard N. Goodwin and Doris Kearns Goodwin to discuss the re-release of Mr. Goodwin's Remembering America: A Voice from the Sixties, with a new introduction by the author.
Remembering America is a behind-the-scenes history of the most momentous decade in American politics. The New York Times says "More powerfully than any other chronicler of the 60's, Mr. Goodwin has re-created the soaring hopefulness that suffused American liberals in the early years of the decade and the sense of loss and betrayal that enveloped them at its end."
A graduate of Tufts University and Harvard Law School, Richard N. Goodwin began his career as a law clerk to Supreme Court Associate Justice Felix Frankfurter and as special counsel to the congressional subcommittee investigating the quiz-show scandals. During the Kennedy administration, Goodwin served as deputy assistant secretary of state for inter-American affairs and as secretary-general of the Peace Corps. In 1964, he became a special assistant to President Lyndon B. Johnson, for whom he wrote the landmark "We Shall Overcome" speech in support of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and also originated the Great Society programs. After leaving government service, Goodwin taught at Wesleyan University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The author of several books, including Promises to Keep and Remembering America, he lives in Concord, with his wife, Doris Kearns Goodwin.
