Texas Talks Lady Bird Johnson

Event Date & Time: Tuesday, September 28, 2021 7pm–8pm

Lady Bird Johnson: Hiding in Plain Sight

Guest Speaker
Julia Sweig
Zoom (online)

America’s First Ladies are not elected politicians, but they are nevertheless immersed in the world of politics and often underestimated or ignored as political beings. A new biography by Julia Sweig, the award-winning author of Lady Bird Johnson: Hiding in Plain Sight (Random House, 2021), examines for the first time in detail this side of Claudia Alta Taylor Johnson as she advised and strategized with her powerfully political husband, President Lyndon Baines Johnson. Join Nancy Baker Jones, historian of Texas women in politics, as she and Sweig discuss Lady Bird in this new light.
