AnUnfinished Love Story: A Personal History of the 1960s by Doris Kearns Goodwin, one of America’s most beloved historians, artfully weaves together biography, memoir, and history to portray the emotional journey she and her husband, Richard (Dick) Goodwin, embarked upon in the last years of his life.

The last great adventure of their 42-year marriage involved sifting through more than 300 boxes of letters, diaries, documents, and memorabilia, an unparalleled personal time capsule of the 1960s. This project imbued Dick’s final days with a sense of purpose and afforded them an opportunity to make fresh assessments of the central figures of the time - John F. Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Robert Kennedy, Eugene McCarthy, and especially Lyndon Johnson, who greatly impacted both their lives.

Goodwin will be available to sign copies of An Unfinished Love Story from 5:15- 6 pm, as well as immediately following the event.
