  • Los Angeles Times Reviews George W. Bush Presidential Center

    This Thursday, fellow Preston Hollow resident and Former President, George Bush will be at the dedication of the  George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum on SMU campus. The library will open to the public May 1. The $250-million complex will house the president’s archive, restaurant, auditorium, policy institute and foundation. Los Angeles Times compares Bush’s White House memoir, “Decision Points”, to the space, in that the “architecture of the complex, like the cadence of that book, is stripped down and unadorned.”

    Check our coverage of the dedication online, through our social media on Facebook, Twitter and in next week’s Preston Hollow edition of People Newspapers. We’ll be there.
