The Seward Connection (Cokie Roberts and Doris Kearns Goodwin)

What do Cokie Roberts and Doris Kearns Goodwin have in common? They both came to the Finger Lakes—compliments of the Seward House Museum Distinguished Speaker Series. Of course, the Finger Lakes region has always had a lot to offer locals and tourists, but these renowned women have global appeal.  Roberts is a contributing senior news analyst for NPR and a regular roundtable analyst for "This Week With George Stephanopoulos." She also works as a political commentator for ABC News and writes a weekly column.  Doris Kearns Goodwin spoke last fall as part of the 2012 Elsa Soderberg Distinguished Speaker Series. Goodwin spoke about William H. Seward, his importance with helping to shape a nation, and about her award winning book, "Team of Rivals."
