'The Hidden Story Of The Marriage That Made A President'

She's been written about as an afterthought to her husband's presidency, but Lady Bird Johnson was a true political partner to Lyndon Johnson. Author Betty Boyd Caroli discusses Lady Bird's marriage to one of the most mercurial presidents this country has ever known.

Betty Boyd Caroli will discuss her latest book, 'Lady Bird and Lyndon: The Hidden Story Of The Marriage That Made A President' at 6:30 on Tuesday, November 10 at the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library. For more information, visit www.kclibrary.org
