This Week at Vroman’s: Laura Bush and Justin Halpern

May 10, 2010

Laura Bush 300x447 This Week at Vroman’s: Laura Bush and Justin Halpern Vromans book signing twitter Laura Bush Justin Halpern  photoThe former First Lady surely needs no introduction. She lived in the White House for eight years, and then she wrote a book — a memoir. She’s famously private, so the book’s supposed candor could be a pleasant surprise. One thing: She still, of course, gets Secret Service protection, so the rules for attending her book signing are a bit stricter than usual — check them out here. Over at Red Hen, we got a note from Vroman’s, our neighbors, informing us of the former First Lady’s visit and basically letting us know that Tuesday is not a good day to go around yelling “BOMB” in the Playhouse District.

The day after Mrs. Bush’s signing, Vroman’s will be hosting Justin Halpern, of the Twitter feed @shitmydadsays (not to be confused with @shitmydeadsays, which I looked at first accidentally and found mildly alarming), which is now a book, Sh*t My Dad Says. Halpern’s dad is… colorful, to put it mildly. And hilarious. I’d quote him, but the Secret Service might come calling. Better to check out the feed and/or the book for yourself.
