"Betty Ford: First Lady, Women's Advocate, Survivor, Trailblazer," by Lisa McCubbin.

Betty Ford’s name is synonymous with many things — especially addiction and recovery, as well as her role as First Lady to President Gerald Ford and even as a breast cancer survivor.

But, there’s also a lot about this trailblazing First Lady that you probably don’t know.

The Show spoke with the author of Betty Ford's first biography, Lisa McCubbin, who’s in the Valley  speaking at Changing Hands bookstore in Tempe Wednesday evening.
