Style of Influence: A Conversation on the Role of the First Lady â€¯- Thursday, March 1, 2018
We have a new program to help launch the Bush Centerâ€™s new special exhibit, First Ladies: The Style of Influence.â€¯ The exhibit will explore the role of the first lady, how the role has changed over time, and how specific first ladies have used the position to advance diplomacy as well as social, cultural, and political initiatives.
For a lively discussion on those topics, Engage at the Bush Center, presented by Highland Capital Management, welcomes an expert panel: Former White House Curator Bill Allman, who served eight presidents and first ladies in 40 years at the White House and notably collaborated with Mrs. Bush on the restoration of the Lincoln Bedroom; Anita McBride, who served as chief of staff to First Lady Laura Bush; and Dr. Katherine Sibley, historian and expert on first ladies and the author of First Lady Florence Harding: Behind the Tragedy and Controversy.
