Schulz’s Dear President Johnson back in print!

Nat news

LBJEnhancedFrontCoverThis is the sort of thing where I’ve had news I wanted to share, but couldn’t (or at least shouldn’t) until everything was ready – but now it is! Back in 1964, Charles Schulz illustrated  a book of kids’ letters to the then-new president, Lyndon Johnson. The letters had been selected from the White House pile by Bill Adler, who had done a previous similar book of letters to Kennedy as well as compiling the best-selling The Kennedy Wit. But Dear President Johnson has been out of print for many administrations now, and plenty of Schulz fans have never seen a copy.

So I fixed it.

I cut deals with both the Schulz people and the Adler people, got the needed rights. An in order for this to be good business, I had to find markets for it — this book is going to be available both at the Schulz Museum gift shop (just in time for the new presidential-themed exhibit “Mr. Schulz Goes to Washington,” which opens this weekend! Serendipity!) and soon at the gift shop at the LBJ Presidential Library.

And, of course, for those of you who don’t happen to live by one of the museums, it’s available at Amazon.

About 100 pages, black and white with a color cover, 6″ square paperback with a list price of $9.99.
