Giovanna McBride’s Gigi at the White House!

Jun 02, 2021 497


Congratulations to NIAF Friend Giovanna McBride for publishing her new children’s book about her own childhood, Gigi at the White House! During the George W. Bush Administration, Gigi had many adventures visiting her mother Anita Bevacqua McBride, then chief of staff to First Lady Laura Bush and now a NIAF Board Member and its Vice Chair National.

Giovanna is a college student who loves children’s literature. So, she is sharing her special childhood memories of visits to the White House from 2005 to 2009, including her favorite stories of exploring the White House at the Easter Egg Roll, Fourth of July, Halloween, and Christmas celebrations, and the friends she made, such as the First Lady, Secret Service agents, the White House pastry chefs, and the White House florist.

She hopes that the book will encourage children to learn more about the White House and life there. Illustrations by artist John Hutton. Available on the White House Historical Association’s website:
