Summary
"Barbara Bush is one of America's most beloved first ladies, and one of only two in our history to be both the wife and mother of a president. Celebrated for her wit, candor, and ebullience, she was embraced on both sides of the political aisle. In the outpouring of national admiration and affection in the days following her death in the spring of 2018 at age ninety-two, many remembered the commencement address she gave to the Wellesley College Class of 1990. She urges the graduates to believe in something larger than themselves, citing her own commitment to literacy and her belief that 'if more people could read, write, and comprehend, we would be much closer to solving so many of the problems plaguing our society.' Barbara Bush's message about men, women, diversity, and big ideals -- finding one's own true colors-- is as timely, important, and inspiring as ever." -- Book jacket
