Robert Caro, Robert Gottlieb, and Lizzie Gottlieb: Turn Every Page

Hosted by the New York Public Library

Robert Caro in 1975. (Arnold Newman)

The legendary writer and his legendary editor come together with their filmmaker to discuss their fifty-year relationship, the subject of the new documentary, "Turn Every Page—The Adventures of Robert Caro and Robert Gottlieb."

In the early 1970s, two-time Biography winner Robert Caro was working in the Allen Room at the New York Public Library trying to finish "The Power Broker," a portrait of New York City under the hands of Robert Moses. At the same time he was also starting his working relationship with editor Robert Gottlieb, a relationship that has spanned over fifty years and every single one of Caro's books. With humor and insight, "Turn Every Page" charts their intertwined careers and watches as they contemplate the completion of Caro’s Lyndon Johnson books, the fifth and final volume of which he is still writing.

Robert Caro and Robert Gottlieb return to the New York Public Library to discuss "Turn Every Page." They are joined by the film's director, Lizzie Gottlieb. They speak with Jordan Pavlin, editor in chief at Alfred A. Knopf.

"Turn Every Page—The Adventures of Robert Caro and Robert Gottlieb" will be released in theaters beginning December 30 by Sony Pictures Classics.
