"A Conversation with Julia Sweig"

On May 20, 2021, Humanities Texas and Texas Book Festival hosted a literary salon featuring author Julia Sweig speaking on the release of her newest book, Lady Bird Johnson: Hiding in Plain Sight, a detailed account of the First Lady and the profound yet under-appreciated impact that her political instincts had on LBJ’s presidency. Moderated by Michael L. Gillette, author of Lady Bird Johnson: An Oral History, this rich discussion paints a vivid portrait of one of the most beloved First Ladies of the twentieth century.
