'Team of Rivals' is First Book Selection for CBS THIS MORNING READS Initiative

CBS THIS MORNING has launched CBS THIS MORNING READS, a new online venture that will virtually connect and engage CBS THIS MORNING viewers with their favorite authors. The first featured selection will be "Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln" by historian and Pulitzer Prize winner Doris Kearns Goodwin, which is published by Simon & Schuster, a subsidiary of CBS.

CBS THIS MORNING READS will give CBS THIS MORNING viewers additional access to their favorite writers over the course of a month, culminating with an on-air interview with the author. While each book is featured, viewers can read, connect and discuss the work at cbsthismorning.com. As it expands, the CBS THIS MORNING READS franchise may incorporate additional publishers.

"Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln" spent 27 weeks atop the New York Times bestseller list when it was released in October 2005. The book is being rereleased today, Oct. 16 as a tie-in to Steven Spielberg's theatrical film "Lincoln" which is based, in part, on the book and stars Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis. The movie premieres on Friday, Nov. 16.

Goodwin will join CBS THIS MORNING co-hosts Charlie Rose, Norah O'Donnell and Gayle King for a live interview Thursday, Nov. 15 to discuss the rerelease of her book, her role in the film and the CBS THIS MORNING READS program. Each week leading up to Goodwin's interview, excerpts, web extras, reading guides and interactive features will be released on cbsthismorning.com.
