Tuesday on Lubbock's Fist News, Ainsley Nelson of the Lubbock Women’s Club Historical Foundation, spoke about the next event in the Distinguished Speaker Series.

The event will feature Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of George W. Bush. She will speak on the character of her bestselling book, Ana's Story: A Journey of Hope, in which Ana is a teenage single mother with HIV. Nelson described the work: "It's a wonderful story of her life and how she's tried to keep her family and her children out of that same life, [from] repeating with HIV." Bush wrote the book while working with UNICEF in 2006. She is now a contributor to NBC's Today Show and to Southern Living magazine. Nelson observed that Bush has grown over the years by continuing to give back to the community.

Previous speakers include Barbara Bush, Joan Lunden, and Chesley Sullenberger. Nelson hopes Bush will "bring a younger crowd and appeal to ladies and their families here in town." The speaker event will take place March 6 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $60 each; they can be purchased by calling 806-763-6448.
