Wit and Wisdom from Texas Governor Ann Richards, Eanes History Group, Nov 14 @11:30am, Westbank and OnlineWit and Wisdom from Texas Governor Ann Richards 

Join us in discussing the Ann Richard Legacy Project’s new book, The One Ann Only: Wit and Wisdom from Texas Governor Ann Richards, a collection of one-liners from the 45th governor of Texas. 

Presented by one of the book’s authors, Margaret Justus. An Austin communications consultant and a former broadcast news journalist who grew up in Kansas City, Justus has lived in Texas for 34 years – 20 years in Austin and 14 years in Houston.

In 2021, Justus founded the Ann Richards Legacy Project, a nonprofit that created and displayed more than 300 Ann Richards street banners in major Texas cities across the state. The Pentagram-designed banners honored the 30th anniversary of the inauguration of Governor Richards, for whom Justus served as deputy press secretary from 1989-1994.

Justus collaborated with Austin philanthropists Lynne Dobson and Greg Wooldridge and with Pentagram to publish this book.

Books will be available for purchase at Westbank Library after the program.​
