Laura Bush & Jenna Bush Hager Visit Naperville

Former First Lady Laura Bush and her daughter Jenna Bush Hager discussed their new picture book “Our Great Big Backyard” as part of an event hosted by Anderson’s Bookshop.

The book was released in conjunction with the 100th birthday of our National Park system and focuses on putting down personal devices and screens and getting into books and nature.

“Those memories outdoors and even in our own backyard there was nothing to distract us, so we had really great conversations and the conversations and those memories are more impactful than time spent looking at a screen,” said Jenna Bush Hager, Co-Author of “Our Great Big Backyard.”

Attendees received a signed copy of the book with the purchase of their ticket.

 The event benefitted the Naperville Education Foundation and the Indian Prairie Education Foundation programs.
