Event Details


Jenna Hager Bush's new book EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL IN ITS TIME comes out September 8, and we were really excited to bring her to the area in September. We are so disappointed but safety and good health are most important and large gatherings are just not possible, so the book tour is switching to fully virtual. If you previously purchased a ticket to the book signing with The Country Bookshop - THANK YOU. You should have received specific guidance via email from The Country Bookshop.

The new plan: a virtual conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Jon Meacham and plenty of interaction with you as well. No matter where you are, you can tune in on September 9 at 6:00 PM ET and join us for a fun hour of lively conversation from the comfort of your home. Jenna will take you behind the scenes of her life and share the advice from her beloved grandparents who taught her about respect, humility, kindness, and living a life of passion and meaning.

If you have not gotten a ticket to the event but would like to join the conversation just follow THIS LINK for ticket options!
