CALL TO INQUIRE
Renowned journalist, Cokie Roberts, named a “Living Legend” by the Library of Congress (2008), is one of the most esteemed and brilliant broadcast journalists of our time. A New York Times bestselling author, trusted historian on women in America and a sought-after political commentator, Cokie continues to be one of the most popular speakers on the lecture circuit today. In addition to her award-winning political reporting, Cokie serves on the boards of many non-profit organizations, including the National Archives Foundation, the Mayo Clinic, and Save the Children, with whom she has traveled the world and seen the devastation of children living in poverty. She can provide poignant, first-hand accounts on these global issues and on the humanitarian and development efforts of both the private sector and the U.S. government. She is a true champion of causes for women and children around the world and offers presentations that are well researched, thoughtful and truly inspiring.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and named by The Financial Times as the most influential commentator in America, Charles Krauthammer has been honored from every part of the political spectrum for his bold and original writing—from the famously liberal People for the American Way (which presented him their First Amendment Award) to the staunchly conservative Bradley Foundation (which awarded him their first $250,000 Bradley Prize).
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough has called Krauthammer “without a doubt, the most powerful force in American conservatism,” and Politico has said that “Krauthammer is revered by colleagues on the right and widely respected by those on the left.… Top Republican lawmakers read his columns, as does the President of the United States.”
His latest book, Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes and Politics, is a no. 1 New York Times bestseller and has sold more than one million copies, making it arguably the best selling collection of nonfiction in U. S. publishing history.
Cokie Roberts is a political commentator for ABC News and NPR. In her more than forty years in broadcasting, she has won countless awards, including three Emmys. She has been inducted into the Broadcasting and Cable Hall of Fame, and was cited by the American Women in Radio and Television as one of the fifty greatest women in the history of broadcasting. In addition to her reporting, Roberts has written six New York Times bestsellers, most dealing with the roles of women in U.S. history.
In addition to her appearances on the airwaves, Roberts, along with her husband, Steven V. Roberts, writes a weekly column syndicated in newspapers around the country by Universal U Click. The Roberts also wrote two books together: Our Haggadah: Uniting Traditions for Interfaith Families, published in 2011 and From this Day Forward, an account of their now almost fifty year marriage and other marriages in American history. The book immediately went onto The New York Times bestseller list, following Cokie Roberts’s number one bestseller, We Are Our Mothers’ Daughters, an account of American women’s roles and relationships over time. Roberts’s other books: Founding Mothers, published in 2004 and Ladies of Liberty in 2008, along with her recently published Capital Dames, about women and Washington in the Civil War—all also rated as New York Times bestsellers. Roberts' latest release is a lavishly illustrated children's book, Ladies of Liberty: The Women Who Shaped Our Nation.
Cokie Roberts holds more than twenty five honorary degrees, serves on the boards of several non-profit institutions and President Bush appointed her to his Commission on Service and Civic Participation. In 2008 the Library of Congress named her a “Living Legend,” one of the very few Americans to have attained that honor. She is the mother of two and grandmother of six.
