Join us on August 1st at 10:00 am for a very special “pop-up” book reading and signing with Giovanna (Gigi) McBride, author of Gigi at the Whitehouse!, and her mother Anita McBride, former Chief of Staff to First Lady Laura Bush!

Gigi at the White House! is based on Gigi’s real-life experience. It was written for early readers and follows Gigi on many adventures exploring the White House at the Easter Egg Roll, Fourth of July, Halloween, and Christmas. Gigi at the White House! is included on First Lady Laura Bush’s 2022 Summer Reading List for Kids. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing at the event.
