Brilliant Lecture Series announces beloved actress Betty White as the next speaker in the “Conversations with Brilliance” program, to be held September 22 at Wortham Center’s Cullen Theater. White will speak at 2:30 and 7 p.m. as part of the same program that brought George Clooney to Houston in May. Friends for Life a Houston shelter with the policy of refusing to kill animals, has been named title sponsor for the event. FFL envisions a community in which no animal will be killed for want of a loving home. A passionate philanthropist, audiences can expect Betty White to speak about her lifelong work as an advocate for animals in addition to her decades of acting, writing and wisdom acquired over the years—with a dose of her timeless humor. Betty White’s wisdom will motivate, inspire and entertain.
