“George and Barbara Bush: A Great American Love Story”
Thursday, January 24, 2019Time 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
We are honored to present Ellie LeBlond Sosa, who will speak about her book and about her legendary grandparents.
Through a lifetime’s worth of letters, photographs, and stories, a portrait emerges of the 77-year love affair between Barbara and George Bush. Their granddaughter, Ellie LeBlond Sosa and co-author Kelly Anne Chase paint the portrait of their enduring relationship.
“To begin with I was in love and I am in love, so that’s not hard,” Barbara Bush told her granddaughter Ellie LeBlond Sosa on her porch in Kennebunkport, Maine. Ellie had asked for the secret to Barbara and President George H. W. Bush’s seventy-seven-year love affair that withstood World War II separation, a leap of faith into the oil fields of West Texas, the painful loss of a child, a political climb to the highest office, and, after the White House, the transition back to “normal” life.
This is a never-before-seen look into the private life of a very public couple.
Reception to follow. Open to the public at no charge.
