On Monday, March 13, 2017, the LBJ Presidential Library hosted a preview and discussion of the new AMC television series, The Son.

Based on Philipp Meyer's acclaimed novel, the multigenerational epic follows two concurrent time periods: One, the story of young Eli McCullough after he is kidnapped and indoctrinated into a tribe of Comanches in 1849. The other, 60 years later, when we see a grown Eli struggle to maintain his family's cattle empire during the turbulent Bandit Wars of South Texas.

Following the preview, lead actor Pierce Brosnan; co-creator and executive producer Philipp Meyer; and showrunner and executive producer Kevin Murphy joined former LBJ Library Director Mark Updegrove for a conversation.

Prior to the event, The Store at LBJ also hosted Meyer for a book signing of The Son.

The Evening With speaker series is generously sponsored by the Moody Foundation, St. David’s HealthCare, Frost Bank, and University Federal Credit Union.
