AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The children of three presidents are set to talk about life in the White House at a conference on first ladies being held at the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library in Austin.

The conference Thursday kicked off with a panel of historians and former White House staffers discussing first ladies throughout history.

Later, Barbara Pierce Bush and Jenna Bush Hager will be featured in a panel along with Steve Ford and Lynda Johnson Robb.

The conference is part of a series of presentations on first ladies presented by American University and the White House Historical Association that have been hosted by presidential libraries.

"The Enduring Legacies of America's First Ladies" also will feature a discussion with former first ladies Laura Bush and Barbara Bush.
