Grab your sister (or a friend who is just like one!) for an event with former first daughters Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush during their Sisters First Tour this fall. Settle in for an evening of personal stories and universal revelations during this celebration of sisterhood and all of the complicated, messy, hilarious, life-defining moments that accompany it.
In their co-authored memoir, Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life, Jenna and Barbara share never-before-told stories about their family, their adventures, their loves and losses, and the special sisterly bond that ties them together.
Born into a political dynasty, Jenna and Barbara grew up in the public eye. As small children, they watched their grandfather become president; just twelve years later, they stood by their father’s side when he took the same oath. They spent their college years being trailed by the Secret Service and chased by the paparazzi, with every teenage mistake making national headlines. But the tabloids didn’t tell the whole story of these two young women and how they managed to forge their own identities under such public scrutiny.
Jenna Bush Hager is a correspondent on 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, written after she served as an intern with UNICEF in Latin America. She also co-authored the children’s books Our Great Big Backyard and Read All About It! with her mother. She lives with her husband and two daughters in New York.
Barbara Pierce Bush is the CEO and co-founder of Global Health Corps (GHC), an organization that mobilizes a global community of young leaders to build the movement for health equity. GHC has mobilized almost one thousand young leaders who believe health is a human right and who take an innovative approach to solving some of the world’s biggest global health challenges. Previously, Barbara worked at the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, and Red Cross Children’s Hospital in South Africa, and interned with UNICEF in Botswana.
