Celebrate Reading With The Bush Family

Dallas/Fort Worth’s 13th annual “Celebration of Reading” benefiting the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy will take place exactly one month from today on Monday, Oct. 6 at the Meyerson Symphony Orchestra. The event, which starts at 7 p.m., features a number of authors such as Emily Giffin. But it’s the chairs you might recognize: Jeb Bush (foundation honorary co-chair), Amanda and George P.

    bk tyler – grammar aside, your comment is ignorant. Please share with us all the volunteer work you do with the Dallas Public Library. I don’t remember seeing your name when I volunteer there twice a month.
