Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy hosts "Celebration of Reading"


Celebrate reading in an engaging evening that honors the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Barbara Bush Foundation. The Bush family personally invites best-selling authors who give freely of their time to share their works with guests. Authors include Eric Blehm, award winning journalist and author of Fearless: The Undaunted Courage and Ultimate Sacrifice of Navy SEAL Team SIX Operator Adam Brown; John Grisham, a perennial best-seller and a returning star from the first celebration; and Walter Isaacson, CEO of the Aspen Institute and author of several highly acclaimed books including his recent biography of Steve Jobs. 

The annual fundraiser benefits the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy and the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation.
