National Book Festival

With the publication of his first book, “Max Perkins: Editor of Genius,” in 1978, A. Scott Berg won a National Book Award. His third book, “Lindbergh,” about the famous aviator Charles Lindbergh, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1998. Just 12 days after Katharine Hepburn died in 2003, Berg published “Kate Remembered,” based on his 20-year friendship with the actress. Berg is well-known for the exhaustive research he does for his works, and he began research in 2000 for his just-published biography, “Wilson” (Putnam/Penguin), about the onetime president of Princeton University, governor of New Jersey and 28th president of the United States.
