Native Texan Liz Carpenter (a professional actor), First Lady Lady Bird Johnson's gregarious press secretary, regales walk guests with first-hand information about President Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) and First Lady Lady Bird Johnson, gleaned from working for them for years in just about every capacity imaginable.
She was there on Air Force One when LBJ was sworn into office after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. She was involved with planning and executing many official presidential trips abroad. She was a favorite go-to person to smooth the media's often ruffled feathers. She also had an active role in the President's re-election campaign. Liz could amazingly convince almost anyone to do almost anything the President and First Lady needed. It was her job to at least try.
And then there was the wedding — Luci Johnson's wedding. Liz was in charge of planning the wedding of Luci, the President and First Lady's daughter, to Pat Nugent. That's a story not to be missed. Come prepared to ask lots of questions.
On this 70 minute walk you'll stroll with Liz outside the North Front of the White House, down the East side and finally end up outdie the South Front of the White House where Liz will bid you farewell!
NOTE: The walk takes place in Lafayette Square and around the President's neighborhood. It does not go into the White House or onto the White House grounds.
