First Lady a Harry Potter Fan
Dec 05, 2003
Laura Bush has included Harry Potter in her Christmas decorating at the White House:
Good Morning America:
MRS. BUSH: The theme this year is a Season of Stories. Of course, as an old librarian and a lifelong reader, it was really fun to choose my favorite books. On the mantels we have Harry Potter. On the dining room table, we have Alice in Wonderland.
Q:I understand this year you’ve chosen an interesting theme, Season of Stories, which is a theme I’m sure near and dear to your heart as a former librarian.
MRS. BUSH: That’s right, as an old librarian and longtime — life long reader. It’s been really fun. I picked books that I particularly loved, Nancy Drew and my newest favorite, Harry Potter, who’s back here over my shoulder.
Q Oh, cool.
MRS. BUSH: I read all the Harry Potter books, all five of them, this summer and it was like finding a great mystery writer and having that whole body of work to read at once. I really loved them.
