Doris Kearns Goodwin’s latest book, The Bully Pulpit is a dynamic history of the first decade of the Progressive era, that tumultuous time when the nation was coming unseamed and reform was in the air. Goodwin discusses the broken friendship between Teddy Roosevelt and his chosen successor, William Howard Taft. Roosevelt led a revolution against abusive monopolies, political bosses, and corrupt money brokers, only to see it compromised as Taft surrendered to money men and big business. The rift between the two resulted in the election of Woodrow Wilson and ushered in the modern age. A book signing follows the program.
