Author Robert A. Caro, whose award-winning biographies have told the stories of late President Lyndon B. Johnson and Robert Moses, spoke Tuesday night, Feb. 26, 2013, at Davidson College.
He told the audience at Duke Family Performance Hall he’s still writing about Johnson because “you’re always learning something new.”
Mr. Caro talked about how President Johnson had the will and the power to make things happen in Washington – and that’s what fascinates him. “I try to explain that in my books, how he’s doing it. To me at least, it’s not only fascinating, but revelatory, to see how political power is used by a president who’s a master at doing it,” he said.
