The National Celebration of Reading brings together members of the Bush family, bestselling authors and entertainers, and special guests to advance the work of the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy. This signature event at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., raises support for nationwide literacy programs and increases awareness of our country’s literacy crisis.
