November 27, 2015 – It’s History in Five Friday, presented by Simon & Schuster.

For the day after Thanksgiving, we’re joined by historian of first ladies Betty Boyd Caroli, whose previous books include The Roosevelt Women: A Portrait In Five Generations, and The First Ladies: From Martha Washington to Michelle Obama.

Today, she introduces us to a woman who was at the center of public life for half a century, and yet who few really knew. The book is Lady Bird & Lyndon: The Hidden Story of a Marriage That Made a President. For more on this title, you can enjoy our all-new interview with Betty Boyd Caroli, when we upload it on Monday, November 30, 2015.

History in Five Friday.
It’s the perfect way to kick off your modern weekend… with people from the past.
