Despite the recent death of her grandmother, Barbara Bush, Jenna Bush Hager will speak at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Community Concert Hall at Fort Lewis College, 1000 Rim Drive.
The series is an annual event that brings nationally known speakers to Durango to discuss philanthropy and how the power of compassion can change lives.
Hager, the daughter of former United States President George W. Bush and Laura Bush, will speak about her passions of early-childhood development and literacy education.
Hager is author of The New York Times bestseller Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope, which was written after she traveled to Latin America as an intern with United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund.
Tickets for Hager’s speech cost $30-$55 and are available online at www.durangoconcerts.com.
