Have you picked up your dry cleaning recently? Are your pockets feeling deep?Consider getting dressed up for a change and pay it forward at the Meyerson Symphony Center, which welcomes Barbara Bush’s annual Celebration of Reading this evening. The event features readings from authors Brad Meltzer, Kelly Corrigan, Eric Draper, Emily Giffin and Gary Haugen, with a seated dinner to follow. Tickets range from $150 all the way up to $80,000 plus sponsorship packages. Proceeds go to the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy. For your contribution, you’ll get to mingle with the entire Bush family tree, as Mrs. Laura Bush is honorary chair of the event and Amanda and George P. Bush are committee chairs. Many other members of Dallas’ high society promise to attend, so it’s sure to be good people watching. It takes place at 7 p.m. Monday at the Meyerson (2301 Flora St.). More info at Barbarabush.org
