LOCAL>> Julia Sweig – Lady Bird Johnson: Hiding in Plain Sight

Award-winning author discusses her book about Lady Bird Johnson with Robin Givhan

Julia Sweig‘s recent release, Lady Bird Johnson: Hiding in Plain Sight is a magisterial portrait of Lady Bird Johnson, and a major reevaluation of the profound yet underappreciated impact the First Lady’s political instincts had on LBJ’s presidency.
