On Golda Meir: Francine Klagsbrun in Conversation with Tom Brokaw

Iron-willed leader, chain-smoking political operative, tea-and-cake-serving grandmother—Golda Meir, the fourth prime minister of Israel, was a world figure unlike any other.

And Francine Klagsbrun’s definitive 2017 biography, Lioness: Golda Meir and the Nation of Israel, gave us a Golda for the ages. Now Klagsbrun sits down with legendary newsman Tom Brokaw for a penetrating conversation on Israel’s complex founding mother, who led the nation through the historic 1973 Yom Kippur War. What is Meir’s legacy in her homeland and around the globe, and what do the lessons of her life tell us about the future of the fraught Middle East?
