Georgia Southern hosts former First Lady Laura Bush

Posted: Updated:

 

Thousands turned out at Georgia Southern University to hear from a former First Lady.

Laura Bush spoke about her years in the White House and the adjustments she and husband, Former President George W. Bush, have made since leaving the public eye. She talked about the challenges in the days following 9 /11 and the causes she and her husband have become involved in since leaving office.

"I read her memoir a few years ago when it came out and I enjoyed it and thought it would be cool to hear her in person," said Lauren Dukes.

"Laura Bush is just so incredible and to see her here in person, to be in the same room with someone of such a high caliber, is such an honor," said Tannis Kufner.

The former First Lady's visit is part of the University's distinguished lecture series.
