Two of Austin’s biggest celebrities are joining forces for a Q&A session open to the public.

Minister of Culture Matthew McConaughey and former Longhorn Emmanuel Acho will meet at LBJ Auditorium, 2313 Red River St., on May 22 at 2 p.m.

The author behind New York Times bestselling book "Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man,” Acho will be there to celebrate the recent release of his new book, “Illogical: Saying Yes to a Life Without Limits.”

Acho had McConaughey on his Youtube series of the same name in June 2020.

“Two of your favorite Texans in person and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. It doesn’t happen often and may not happen again, so bring your questions, bring a friend, and prepare to be inspired and entertained," Acho said on social media.

The event is organized in partnership with BookPeople and the Moody College of Communication. Tickets are available for $45.
