FGS and RootsTech 2015 attendees will get to hear firsthand how one of the nation’s most famous families celebrates their family across generations. First Lady Laura Bush and her daughter Jenna Bush Hager will be the keynote speakers during the Friday morning general session on February 13, 2015.
The former First Lady will talk about life in the White House and the importance of family during those eight years, as well as reflect on the difficult days following September 11. Jenna Bush Hager will join her mother onstage for a fireside chat where they will share family stories as a new mother and grandmother.
Hager currently works as a contributor for NBC’s The Today Show and editor-at-large for Southern Living magazine. She enjoys spending as much time as possible with her daughter, Margaret Laura “Mila” Hager.
In addition to being a loving mother and grandmother, Mrs. Bush is a best-selling author, founder of the National Book Festival in Washington D.C. and Chair of the Women’s Initiative at the George W. Bush Institute. Laura Bush served as First Lady while her husband, George W. Bush was President of the United States from 2001-2009. Her father-in-law, George H.W. Bush was President of the United States from 1989-1993.
