The Bush Push For Literacy

Barbara Bush and her Foundation are continuing their efforts to promote Family Literacy with a campaign happening this evening in Houston.  This Bush Push for literacy has been a long time goal of the former First Lady as she continues to 'spread the word' to all American families about the importance of reading. 

"The 2006 Houston Celebration of Reading is scheduled to be held this Thursday, April 20, 2006 at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts in Houston. To date, authors noted for the Celebration are Tiki and Ronde Barber, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Reba McEntire, Chuck Norris and Anita Shreve, and other special guests." (Barbara Bush Foundation)
