Laura Bush, one of the most popular first ladies in history, is a compelling advocate for issues of national and global concern.
One of America’s most popular First Ladies, Mrs. Laura W. Bush discusses her life and shares a compelling voice for helping those in need. Speaking passionately about education, literacy, volunteerism, human rights and the issues of global importance she championed in the White House, Mrs. Bush captures presidential life in the harrowing days and weeks after 9/11. She discusses her experience on the world stage: serving as one of the first U.S. representatives to visit war-torn Afghanistan, reaching out to disease-stricken African nations, tirelessly advocating for women in the Middle East or supporting dissidents in Burma. Mrs. Bush’s compassion, sense of humor, grace and uncommon experience living through consequential times are the backdrop as she shares her incredible story of rising from small town beginnings in Texas to being at the center of world history. Her memoir, Spoken From the Heart, is a New York Times #1 best seller.
