Lady Bird’s Words

LadyBirdJohnson_JacketArt-312x475In case you missed it in the magazine’s February issue, here’s a pointer to Observer contributor Robert Leleux’s review of Lady Bird Johnson: An Oral History, by Michael L. Gillette.

The blog of Oxford University Press, which published the book in November of last year, just posted an interesting online interview with Gillette, executive director of Humanities Texas and former director of the LBJ Library’s Oral History Program, in which he talks about the making of the book.

For more, mark the calendar for Tuesday, April 9, at 6 p.m., when Gillette kicks off a lecture series on influential Texas women with an inaugural installment titled “Conversations with Lady Bird Johnson” at the Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin.
