Former First Lady Laura Bush’s memoirs were an instant best seller. As a former teacher and librarian, she is well versed in the art of writing, which lends a distinct literary quality to her book. She covers the expected topics of her life growing up in West Texas and how the “Old Maid of Midland” married the “Most Eligible Bachelor” of Midland. She also provides insight into the 2000 election and the war on terror and talks with candor about her trips to Africa and the Mideast to reach out to the oppressed women of the Third World. Librarians and non-librarians alike will appreciate the insight into what life was like in the White House before, during and after 9/11.
