At 10:45 a.m. today in the Amphitheater, director Ken Burns and writer Geoffrey C. Ward plan to delve into a deeper dialogue about “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History.” Picking up where they left off in Thursday’s lecture, Burns and Ward will bring the Roosevelts to life, bypassing the idyllic veneer with which many historians gloss their lives and instead approaching them as fundamental human beings.

“Journalism is about an event that happens, and many times, journalists ignore the ramifications of that event 10 years later. And Ken Burns’ work is off the ball. It’s at the larger effect, the larger implication, the larger collection of information,” said President Tom Becker in welcoming the documentarian Burns back to the Amphitheater stage at 10:45 a.m. on Monday.
