— Former first lady Laura Bush will sign copies of her memoir this week at a bookstore in North Naples.

Bush will sign copies of Spoken from the Heart at noon Wednesday at Books-A-Million at Mercato, 9100 Strada Place, located near the northeast corner of U.S. 41 North and Vanderbilt Beach Road.

To participate in the book-signing, you will need a special wristband, which will be given out Monday at 5 p.m. at the Mercato Books-A-Million.

Later Wednesday, Laura Bush will take the stage at Florida Gulf Coast University's Alico Arena in Estero as part of an FGCU lecture series. Bush is set to speak at 5 p.m.

The former first lady has been a frequent speaker in Southwest Florida recently. She appeared at the January Get Motivated! seminars held at Germain Arena in Estero, and spoke at February's Celebration of Reading in Bonita Springs, an annual charity event organized by the Bush family to benefit child and adult literacy programs.

In her new book, Bush uses deft humor and a sharp eye as she lifts the curtain on what really happens inside the White House, from presidential finances to the 175-year-old tradition of separate bedrooms for presidents and their wives to the antics of some White House guests and even a few members of Congress, according to a description from publisher Simon & Schuster.
