Jenna Bush Stops By Aggieland to Promote Book

By  | 

The First Daughter and former First Granddaughter made appearances in Aggieland to promote her new book.

Jenna Bush, the author of "Ana's Story," started her day at Bryan High School Monday morning. After talking to students and reading from her book, Bush signed copies of "Ana's Story" for the Vikings.

Later, the daughter of George Bush went to the presidential library of her grandfather.

"It's a very mature and moving story that I have read and that Barbara's read some time ago, and I know that you'll enjoy it," the 41st president told the crowd in his introduction.

Jenna was met with a standing ovation by the Aggie crowd, something not lost on the Texas Longhorn, who told the audience she had a great amount of respect for the rival institution, this after she was met with the customary hissing crowd voicing their dislike of the University of Texas.

"Oh no, people hissed at me earlier today," she exclaimed.

Like at Bryan High, Bush went on to talk about her trip to Latin America with UNICEF, where she chronicled the stories of young people dealing with disease, hunger and poverty.

However, Bush told the audience dispite the bad things she saw, the attitudes of the young people remained strong.

"All the kids we met are living with so much hope. They have the same dreams as many of us. They want to graduate from high school, live in a safe home, go to college, and someday, have families."

Bush also signed copies of her book for the Bush Library crowd. It's expected to be a best seller.
