Former President George Bush will kick off a book tour for his new memoir Decision Points tonight on NBC in an interview with The Today Show’s Matt Lauer.
The New York Times has more: “The NBC interview is the start of a book tour like almost no other. Mr. Bush will sit down with Oprah Winfrey and Rush Limbaugh, as well as with all three prime-time hosts on the Fox News Channel this week. There will be print interviews, too, but the only one announced so far is with AARP The Magazine.”
Crown Publishers is releasing the new memoir in North America tomorrow in print, as well as in two different eBook versions.
