The Kentucky Center presents
Jenna and Barbara Bush: Sisters First
Grab your sister (or a friend who is just like one!) for a special event with former first daughters Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush during their Sisters First Tour this fall. Settle in for an evening of personal stories and universal revelations during this celebration of sisterhood and all of the complicated, messy, hilarious, life-defining moments that accompany it, moderated by Emily Bingham.
For the first time, Jenna and Barbara will take readers on a revealing, funny, and thoughtful tour behind the scenes of their lives. They’ll share never-before-told stories about their family, their adventures, their loves and losses, and the special sisterly bond that ties them together.
Your ticket to the Sisters First Tour includes access to the talk and an autographed copy of Jenna and Barbara’s highly-anticipated book of personal essays, SISTERS FIRST (a $28 value).
VIP Ticket includes a pre-show meet & greet and photo opportunity with Jenna and Barbara Bush beginning at 6:00 PM; signed copy of their new book SISTERS FIRST; reserved premium seating.
