On January 10th, 2019, The Henry Ford will host Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin inside Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation. The event is part of the programming around Enduring Ideals: Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms, an internationally touring exhibition organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum, open now until Jan. 13, 2019. Tickets for An Evening with Doris Kearns Goodwin are $65 and can be purchased by visiting thehenryford.org or by calling 313-982-6001. Members receive discount pricing. Opening remarks start at 7 pm.
Doris Kearns Goodwin is a world-renowned presidential historian, public speaker and Pulitzer Prize-winning, New York Times #1 best-selling author. Her seventh book, Leadership in Turbulent Times, was published in September 2018 to critical acclaim and became an instant New York Times bestseller. A culmination of Goodwin’s five-decade career of studying the American presidents focusing on Presidents Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Baines Johnson, the book provides an accessible and essential road map for aspiring and established leaders in every field, and for all of us in our everyday lives.
During the evening, Goodwin will share her deep understanding of the ambition, resolution and resilience of some of our nation’s most revered presidents that are highlighted in her latest book. The evening will provide insight into how our democracy has survived, and even thrived, through troubling times, including the era highlighted inside the Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms exhibition.
Four Freedoms illuminates both the historic context in which FDR articulated the Four Freedoms and the role Rockwell’s paintings played in bringing them to life for millions of people. The evening will provide one of the last opportunities to see the famous paintings, as well as other works by Rockwell and his contemporaries, alongside interactive digital displays and virtual-reality technology. The exhibition is organized into five sections taking visitors on a journey of the Four Freedoms from President Roosevelt’s famous 1941 Annual Message to Congress to the artistic expressions by Rockwell, and his contemporaries to a fresh take on the Four Freedoms by artists of today.
