AUSTIN – Former Vice President Joe Biden will appear at LBJ Auditorium to a full crowd Tuesday as part of the Tom Johnson Lectureship.
The 47th Vice President will be the fifth in the series, and will speak at 6 p.m. Oct. 3. The LBJ Library said no more tickets are available for the event, but there will be a standby line. Those who could not secure a ticket can line up in the upper lobby outside the auditorium. “Just before the program begins at 6 p.m., those in the standby line will be invited into the auditorium on a first come, first served basis to fill any empty seats,” the library said. Admission is not guaranteed for people in the standby line.
The University of Texas said free parking will be available in the LBJ Library visitors' lot (lot #38) and, after 5 p.m., in lots #37 and #39.
If you cannot make the event and wish to watch it, the full video will be posted to the LBJ Library’s YouTube page later this fall.
The LBJ Library said the Tom Johnson Lectureship was established in 2010 in recognition of and appreciation for his “30 years of distinguished service as Chairman of The Lyndon Baines Johnson Foundation Board of Trustees.” Recent lecturers have included baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron, civil rights leader Andrew Young, and former of Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.
