Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy 2017 Dallas/Fort Worth Celebration of Reading

Signing/Readings, Benefit/Fundraiser

The Barbara Bush Foundation invites you to join us as we celebrate the 16th annual Celebration of Reading Dallas/Fort Worth. Featuring guest appearances by members of the Bush family and New York Times best-selling authors, the event features a private, intimate luncheon and VIP reception with guest authors, and the always-entertaining reading program followed by dinner. Throughout the Celebration, you can expect to be entertained by a lineup of engaging authors reading from their most recent works, inspired by a transformational testimony of the impact the Foundation is making in North Texas, and empowered to be an advocate for literacy in your community. Funds raised from the annual Celebration of Reading help support family literacy programs of the Barbara Bush Foundation, including Teen Trendsetters™, an anchor program of the organization that pairs teen mentors with first, second or third grade students who are, on average, six months behind in reading. The Foundation currently offers 20 family literacy programs serving more than 700 students and families in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
