Jenna Bush to promote her book in Gainesville

First Daughter Jenna Bush will visit Gainesville on Thursday to speak about her new book, "Ana's Story: A Journey of Hope."

The speech, hosted by Barnes & Noble, will be at 7 p.m. at Grace United Methodist Church, 9325 W Newberry Road. Bush will be available to sign books afterward.

Everyone wishing to attend must pick up a wristband from Barnes & Noble, 3910 SW Archer Road, in Butler Plaza.

The free wristbands are limited to 600 and are available today from noon to 8 p.m.

Bush's book is classified as "teen non-fiction," said Amanda Cole, merchandising manager, but she expects the visit to draw a wide range of age groups.

The book is based on Bush's work with UNICEF in Latin America and focuses on a teenage girl with HIV.

"It's very much photo essay and written word to tell the story, so it's pretty cool," Cole said. The book contains 49 photographs.

Bush is the biggest celebrity the Gainesville Barnes & Noble has ever hosted, she said.
