Elkhart native coming to Goshen College for release of her new book

GOSHEN, Ind. -- An Elkhart native who has gone on to become a White House correspondent for The New York Times and will talk about her new book, “American Woman: The Transformation of the Modern First Lady, from Hillary Clinton to Jill Biden,” at Goshen College on March 6 at 7 p.m.

According to organizers, author Katie Rogers will share opening remarks and answer questions during the event and a reception will follow.

This book, which hits shelves on Feb. 27, is her first, and she will be available to sign copies at the event.

Organizers say this is a return visit to Goshen College for Rogers, who has worked at The New York Times since 2014.

Rogers delivered a Yoder Public Affairs Lecture on “Covering the White House in an Age of Misinformation, Mistruths and Mistrust" in the fall of 2019.

Her new book is said to shed a revealing light on Jill Biden’s role in the White House and details her determination to continue teaching full time while assuming the duties of first lady, despite some resistance from her husband.

"Rogers has traveled the world covering two presidential administrations, writing extensively about domestic policy, foreign policy and the complicated dynamics of first families," said Goshen College Director of Communications and Marketing Gunnar Sadowey. "She holds a bachelor’s degree from Loyola University Chicago and a master’s from Northwestern. Early in her career, she worked for The Elkhart Truth, where her beat included education."
