The impressive duo hosted a talk with a live audience in New York City Monday night to discuss Jenna's book, Everything Beautiful In Its Time.

The mother-of-three is a die-hard book fan, and her co-star constantly celebrates her achievements in reading, always making sure to give her book club, Reading with Jenna, a shout out on their show.

The author is an avid writer as well, having three children's books and a memoir written with her twin Barbara Pierce Bush about growing up within the "Bush dynasty."

While she is certainly a seasoned author, Everything Beautiful In Its Time is a departure from her previous memoir, and it contains her most candid revelations yet.

An homage to her grandparents, George and Barbara Bush, who to her were Gampy and Ganny, and Harold and Jenna Welch, or Pa and Grammee, the memoir takes on a more diary-like style, as she includes poems, raw anecdotes and lessons she learned from both set of grandparents.
