ANN ARBOR--Join us as accomplished biographer Betty Caroli speaks about her just-released book, Lady Bird and Lyndon. In this absorbing work, Lady Bird takes center stage, showing strength and resilience behind her soft Southern manner, demonstrating her political acuity and business savvy, which were essential to Lyndon’s success.
Lady Bird and Lyndon restores Lady Bird to her rightful place in history, and paints a vivid portrait of a marriage with complex, but familiar and identifiable overtones. Caroli refutes the “doormat” reputation of a humiliated wife to a coarse, philandering Texan by underscoring the symbiotic relationship that mutually sustained the couple through their whole lives.
Caroli offers a fresh look at Lady Bird who proved herself to be “the coach, the advisor, the steady soothsayer to an erratic man,” by offering wise advice, keeping her volatile husband steady during his darkest moments, and helping him turn his sweeping ambitions into action.
