 National Book Festival, Oct. 11-12, 2002
Laura Bush kicks off the National Book Festival Gala Friday, October 11, 2002 at the Library of Congress. Said Mrs. Bush, "Books are not just for reading - they are for sharing, and talking about. A good book draws us back again - we want to remember the scenes and revisit the characters. Finishing a book is like saying good-bye to an old friend; we need support groups for that. That's why book clubs were invented." White House photo by Susan Sterner.
