An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.
Along with serving as president and CEO of the LBJ Foundation and presidential historian for ABC News, Mark K. Updegrove is the author of several books, including Baptism by Fire: Eight Presidents Who Took Office in Times of Crisis and The Last Republicans: Inside the Extraordinary Relationship Between George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. His newest work is Incomparable Grace: JFK in the Presidency, which Doris Kearns Goodwin calls “an important book that captures the energy, hope and vision of a young president navigating a potential nuclear confrontation, a gathering storm in Vietnam, and the struggle for justice at home.”
Updegrove recently discussed Incomparable Grace with author/attorney Talmage Boston. Listen to the podcast here.
