Goodwin & Rubenstein's Show at Duke University

The woman who wrote about President Teddy Roosevelt's tackling Robber Barons will be interviewed by Carlyle Group co-founder David Rubenstein, himself a modern day robber baron.

Goodwin’s most recent book, The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism (2013), 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. 
Like Andrew Carnegie with his library money, Rubenstein's philanthropy has Duke University bringing this pair together with no apparent appreciation for its irony. 

The evening with Goodwin and Rubenstein will be presented as the Weaver Memorial Lecture 
What songs will this pair sing that lull the public into a fairy tale world on stage?  .
