Author Event @ SLCL: Joshua Zeitz “Building The Great Society”

June 5, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

President Lyndon B. Johnson’s towering political skills and his ambitious slate of liberal legislation are the stuff of legend: the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, Medicare, Medicaid, Head Start, and environmental reform. But what happened after the bills passed? Joshua Zeitz reanimates the creative and contentious atmosphere inside Johnson’s White House as a talented and energetic group of advisers made LBJ’s vision a reality. Zeitz is also the author of the New York Times bestseller “Lincoln’s Boys.”

Presented by the ‘Buzz’ Westfall Favorite Author Series.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
Author presentation will be followed by book signing. If you are unable to make event but would like a signed copy, please call or drop by the store to arrange!
