Lake LBJ and the rebirth of kingsland: 1951-1970 – Tuesday, July 24th @ 6:00 P.M.
John Hallowell – local author and newspaper editor
John Hallowell started the Highland Lakes Weekly in 2011; based in Kingsland, but covering the entire Highland Lakes area -- basically, Burnet and Llano Counties and Lakes Buchanan, Inks, LBJ, Marble Falls and western Lake Travis. He focuses on community events, area attractions and remarkable personalities.
Lake LBJ and the Rebirth of Kingsland: 1951-1970, written from interviews with old-timers and newspaper accounts from those exciting years, tells part of the story of "Lyndon's Lake" and the small town of Kingsland. Readers will see a different side of a legendary American president (and the huge impact of his intermittent presence just across the lake that bore his name) while learning almost first-hand of the Kingsland adventure.
