*TC Doris Kearns Goodwin has written books before, best sellers about presidents and power that received glowing reviews.But the publication of "No Ordinary Time," the story of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt during World War II, is Ms. Goodwin's first experience of being treated, in her words, "as an ordinary historian." She couldn't be happier.This time, there are no qualifiers or malicious gossip from critics. Her first book, an acclaimed 1976 biography of Lyndon B. Johnson, sparked rumors -- never proven -- that she was having an affair with the ex-president.

Authors Bill Bryson and Doris Kearns Goodwin are among the headliners for the 2013-14 Baltimore Speakers Series, part of a lineup that is sure to delight book lovers.

His humorous style has won him a loyal folllowing, and his travel books are must-reads. Among his other gems are "Neither Here Nor There" -- which is on my nightstand right now -- "A Walk in the Woods" and "A Short History of Nearly Everything.
