Event Description

It is 1969 and Lady Bird Johnson has just returned to Texas at the end of her husband's presidency. As she welcomes visitors to her home, she reminisces about her years in Washington, the life-changing experiences that brought her to the White House, and how she forged her own path as first lady as an advocate for the environment, civil rights and her beloved husband. In this humorous, poignant and insightful historical portrayal, actress and historian Leslie Goddard brings the gracious Lady Bird to life. 

Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., is an award-winning scholar and actress who has been portraying great women in history for more than twenty years. She holds an interdisciplinary Ph.D. from Northwestern University as well as a master's degree and an undergraduate degree in theater. A former museum director, she currently works full-time as an actress, public speaker and author. Recognized as one of the top historical performers working today, her portrayals have been seen by audiences in more than thirty-five states, including scores of universities, museums, libraries, civic organizations and Chautauqua festivals.
