Moderated by Lisa Lucas

Robert A. Caro defines his writing as “an attempt to examine and explain political power: how it is created, how it works, how it can be used—for good and for ill." The author of The Power Broker and The Years of Lyndon Johnson, he is a two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Biography, three-time winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, as well as winner of the National Book Award, the Gold Medal in Biography from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the Francis Parkman Prize. Caro graduated from Princeton University and later became a Nieman Fellow at Harvard. In 2010, he received the National Humanities Medal from President Obama. He lives in New York City with his wife, Ina, a historian and writer.
