CHICAGO, IL–Excited book buyers, many of them young women, arrived early Sunday morning in anticipation of meeting best-selling twin authors, Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush. Their latest book, Sisters First, reveals the special relationship between the two women, whose father and grandfather are former U.S. President George W. Bush, and the late U.S. President, George H.W. Bush.
Friendly and humble, the sisters took time to chat with visitors, snap photos with fans, and sign their book, described by their publisher as a lovely, lyrical ode to the magic of sisterhood.
“A young girl’s wish is granted when a new sister arrives. While the baby can’t do much, over time the big and little siblings become inseparable, playing and dancing, imagining and laughing. By each other’s sides, they are smarter, kinder, and braver than they ever thought they could be. And they are forever sisters first.
This exquisite celebration of the bond between sisters is inspired by the spirited childhood of Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush, authors of the #1 New York Times bestseller Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life.”
Jenna Bush Hager is a co-host of NBC’s Today Show and an editor-at-large for Southern Living magazine. She is the author of the New York Times bestseller Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope, and she co-authored the #1 New York Times bestseller Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life with her twin sister, as well as the children’s books Our Great Big Backyard and Read All About It! with her mother, former First Lady Laura Bush. Jenna lives in New York.
Barbara Pierce Bush is the board chair and co-founder of Global Health Corps, an organization that has mobilized more than one thousand young leaders who take an innovative approach to solving some of the world’s biggest global health challenges. She is the co-author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life with her twin sister, and the picture book Sisters Firstis her debut work for children. Barbara is currently pursuing her Masters at Harvard University.
Those unable to attend the sisters’ book signing still have the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of the book at any Barbara’s.
