Celebration of Reading Events
DALLAS CELEBRATION OF READING- October 7, 2013
FLORIDA CELEBRATION OF READING- Feb, 14, 2014
HOUSTON CELEBRATION OF READING- April 24,2014
The joy of reading comes alive each year through Celebration of Reading events in Florida and Texas. The annual fundraisers bring together best-selling authors, members of the Bush family, family literacy students, donors and book lovers – all to support the mission of the Barbara Bush Foundation. The next event is October 7th in Dallas/Ft. Worth. It’s surely to sell out so learn more today and join hosts Amanda and George P. Bush, along with Jeb Bush and many other VIPs!
Millions of dollars are raised thanks to generous Celebration sponsors and partners who share the First Lady’s passion to nurture reading as a family value in every home in America and to end the devastating cycle of dual generational illiteracy.
Over the years, and in past celebrations, more than 150 best-selling authors, e.g., David Baldacci, Michael Beschloss, John Grisham, Brad Meltzer, Daniel Silva, and children’s author Jeff Kinney have shared their wit, wisdom and words.
