Former First Daughters Barbara Pierce Bush and Jenna Bush Pierce have been through a lot in their lifetime. And now, they’re sharing their experiences with their fans in a new joint memoir written by the twin sisters themselves!
In the upcoming book titled _ Sisters First_ — which will be available on Oct. 24! — the 35-year-olds plan to tell stories of everything from their public debut when their grandfather, George H.W. Bush, was inaugurated in 1989, to their own father’s swear-in 12 years later, and even their unconventional college life consumed by Secret Service and paparazzi. It will also feature a foreword by their mother, Laura Bush.
“We’ve always felt lucky that we had each other to walk side-by-side as sisters through the extraordinary circumstances of our ordinary lives,” Jenna and Barbara Bush told People in a new interview. “We are so excited to share the stories that mean the most to us — from the ones that made us laugh to those that shaped us the most — and we hope to make Sisters First an entertaining read that will also give readers a more nuanced look behind the headlines.”
Grand Central Publishing will be publishing the piece. “Grand Central is proud to publish this touching and funny portrait of two sisters leading singular American lives,” Senior Vice President and Publisher, Ben Sevier, said. “The nation has watched Jenna and Barbara grow up — from children in their grandfather’s White House to mischievous young women in their father’s to civic-minded adults making their mark in the fields of journalism and global health.”

He continued, “Sisters First is the story the public hasn’t heard, told with an intimacy that only twin sisters can share, and our publishing team cannot wait to bring this dual memoir to the world.”
This isn’t Jenna’s first authoring gig. She wrote the New York Times bestseller Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope and also co-wrote two children’s books with her mother. If one thing is for sure, we can hardly wait to read the girls’ new piece!
