People huddled together Thursday morning, braving the 30-degree temperatures, to wait for a few second in front of George W. Bush.
Signing his newest book, “41: A Portrait of My Father,” the former president greeted each patron on their way through the line. With “thank yous” and sports talk with individuals wearing Cowboys gear.
“What do you think?” he asked.
“Won’t make it to the playoffs,” the fan said.
As the ex-president was fed book after book, he never looked down to check his signature, instead focusing his attention on the growing line in front of him, stopping to sing only to pose handing a copy to a baby.
After standing in line for over an hour, winding in and out of the Barnes & Noble Lincoln Park, across from Northpark, each person received a signed copy of Bush’s biography of his father, former president George H. W. Bush, through his own eyes.
The book covers the 41st president’s service during World War II, his political rise to president, and influence on the young George W. Bush.
