With guest host Jane Clayson. 

Presidential daughters and granddaughters Barbara and Jenna Bush join the program to talk about their new book, “Sisters First.”

The book explores the stories behind the headlines, from a childhood in Texas to a young adulthood in the White House — and in the public eye.

This hour will air Thursday at 11 a.m. EST.

Talk about ringside seats to history.  Barbara and Jenna Bush were front row, middle.  As little girls, their grandfather was president of the United States, the White House their playground.  Later, their father was president and their mother First Lady at one of the most difficult times in our history.  A privilege, yes.  But having people you love as people, in the hot glare of world politics, that’s tough.  This hour, On Point:  twin tales from the Bush daughters.
