The Bush Family Women

Their Story in Photographs

by Elaine S. Povich
The Bush Family Women is a must-have collectible for devoted fans of the Bushes and a celebration of four women—Barbara, Laura, Jenna, and Barbara—who hold a unique place in the story of America.

The Bush family’s political resume is unequaled in US history: one senator, two governors, one vice president, and two presidents, all whom have helped shape the nation for decades. The Bushes have long lived in front of the camera, but never has a photographic book focused on the stories and achievements of the three generations of the family’s women who came of age in the public eye: Barbara Pierce Bush (First Lady, 1989–1993, Second Lady, 1981–1989); Laura Welch Bush (First Lady, 2001–2009); and twins Barbara Bush Coyne and Jenna Bush Hager.
     Barbara Bush was a passionate promoter of literacy and education, as is her daughter-in-law, Laura. Both wrote bestselling memoirs. The younger Barbara is co-founder of Global Health Corps, an organization building a global movement for health equity, and, with Jenna, a New York Times bestselling coauthor. Jenna is a contributing correspondent and cohost on NBC’s Today show—where she launched a successful book club in 2019—and also a New York Times bestselling author.

In this stunning, collectible volume, the inspiring journeys of these four women—from childhood to the White House and beyond—are brought to life with more than 150 photographs, quotes, and highlights from notable speeches, punctuated by insightful commentary from award-winning Washington journalist and author Elaine S. Povich.
