President Bush to Sign Copies of Portraits of Courage at the Bush Center

May 30, 2017
The June 5, 2017 event is open to the public.

On Monday, June 5, 2017, President George W. Bush will sign copies of his new book, Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors, at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas. The event is open to the public. The book signing will be open to the press for b-roll purposes during the top of the signing.

Portraits of Courage brings together sixty-six full-color portraits and a four-panel mural painted by President Bush of 98 service members and veterans who have served our nation with honor since 9/11, and whom the President has come to know personally since leaving office. Each portrait is accompanied by the inspiring story of the warrior depicted, written by President Bush. The paintings are displayed in the Bush Center’s current special exhibit, which runs through October 1.

President Bush is donating 100% of his profits from the book to the Bush Center, whose Military Service Initiative works to ensure that post-9/11 veterans and their families make successful transitions to civilian life with a focus on gaining meaningful employment and overcoming the invisible wounds of war.

Media should apply for credentials by Friday, June 2, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. Follow-up instructions and parking information will be sent to credentialed media when registration is closed.
