    About The Book

    This unique collection of witticisms, history, and useful information is

    packaged in the hilarious tradition of Liz Carpenter, a treasured Texas

    personality. The author’s stories represent a lifetime of research and

    personal experiences through nearly a dozen presidential administrations,

    from her early experiences as a White House correspondent to her years

    within the walls of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as press secretary for Lady

    Bird Johnson, to her active role in the birth of the contemporary women’s

    movement. Carpenter believes one of the greatest challenges facing today’s

    speechwriters is “humanizing their speakers,” so she includes a full

    chapter on writing speeches for high-tech executive types. Start With a

    Laugh is organized both for easy reading and for quick reference. For the

    reader who wishes to explore the book from cover to cover, each chapter

    explains Carpenter’s philosophy about a particular aspect of speechwriting

    and features her owns speeches as illustrations. For quick reference, the

    reader can find a compendium of abbreviated resources, including an index

    of speeches, lists of speechwriting dos and don’ts, a collection of

    inspiring and funny quotes for cribbing, and questions to ask in advance of

    delivering a speech.

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

    Liz Carpenter-sixth-generation Texan-is a political artifact, an aging

    feminist (80 on September 1, 2000), author and lecturer, despite her

    handicap of a bum leg that necessitates cane and electric cart. She lives

    in West Lake Hills, overlooking Austin, the capital of Texas. President

    Clinton named her to the advisory committee of the White House Conference

    on Aging. He is the fourth president to appoint Mrs. Carpenter to a

    position of trust. The author has been honored by her profession, serving

    as president of the National Women’s Press Club, as the recipient of many

    journalism awards, and is a Distinguished Alumnus of The University of

    Texas at Austin. She was one of the 271 founders of the National Women’s

    Political Caucus in July of 1971. After that, she hit the ERA ratification

    trail with a group including Erma Bombeck and Judy Carter. Her home in

    Austin is still a gathering place for movers and shakers, and is her

    launching pad for speeches and articles. When she is not busy writing she

    lectures on Growing Old with Grace and Humor, Humor is Therapy, and the

    Widening World of Women.
