Houston Celebration of Reading

April 21, 2016

The Hobby Center- Houston, Texas 

The 22nd annual A Celebration of Reading event that benefits the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation was another tremendous success. Under the capable leadership of Maria and Neil Bush and of course, Mrs. Barbara Bush, the audience of nearly 1,900 people enjoyed a wonderful program. The event featured best-selling authors Kelly Corrigan, David Eagleman, Jon Meacham and Brad Meltzer and our surprise guest and special literacy advocate (and partner with Mrs. Barbara Bush) J.J. Watt. Thanks to so many loyal and new supporters, the event raised over $2 million.  

 SAVE THE DATE for the 2017 A Celebration of Reading on April 20, 2017!!!!
