Book Tour for “The Superpower Sisterhood”


Sisters come in many forms. Some are born into your family, some you choose later in life, and some are born right next to you. For twins Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush, their bond started at birth and grew into a superpower. 

The George and Barbara Bush Foundation, The Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M and The George H.W. Bush Museum and Library welcomes Hager and Bush on Saturday, April 23 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. The sisters will share stories about their upbringing and path in life during an hour of conversation celebrating family and their new children’s book, “The Superpower Sisterhood.” Join their book tour at the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center, but be sure to register first. The discussion will be moderated by Mary Kate Cary, who served as George H. W. Bush’s speechwriter from 1989 to early 1982.

“The Superpower Sisterhood” is rooted in their own relational bond that grew during their childhood in a political home and how it changed as they pursued their separate careers. Their heartwarming story will make you hold your sisters and dear friends close, as it tells the story of a group of girls who learn they can accomplish just about anything together. You can order a pre-signed book (no personalization) from the Museum Store to be shipped or to pick up at the event.

This is the third book the twins have co-authored together, including another children’s book titled “Sisters First”  and their memoir, “Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life,” both New York Times bestsellers.  

As a co-host of NBC’s TODAY Show, Hager is known as a journalist and news personality. She also authored The New York Times bestseller “Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope,” which she wrote as an intern with UNICEF. Barbara Pierce Bush is known for her activism through Global Health Corps, which she co-founded to equip young leaders to impact health issues around the world. With their mother, Laura Bush, they were some of Glamour magazine’s 2011 Women of the Year.

Registration is required by Monday April 18, so be sure to reserve your seats on the ​​George and Barbara Bush Foundation website.

Much of her free time is spent in coffee shops, libraries and parks to study, though she also loves creating and enjoying a cozy space at home.
