David McCullough, Pulitzer-Prize Winning Author, Dies at 89

the bestselling author whose biographies on Presidents and won Pulitzer Prizes, has died. The author gained critical acclaim and fame for his knack of bringing American history to life in his books and on the television screen through dramatic narratives that created colorful pictures of historical figures. “He loves a good story, but he really loves a true good story,” Tom Hanks, who produced an HBO miniseries based on Mr. McCullough’s John Adams book, has said, citing the author’s own words.
