ALERT: EVENT RESCHEDULED

IMPORTANT: Due to illness, Open Book presents Amanda Lucidon and Chasing Light has been rescheduled for Feb 28. Because the date change may effect whether or not people may be able to attend, we ask that you please RSVP again

Join us as we kickoff a special exhibit for Black History Month featuring original photographs by Official White House Photographer Amanda Lucidon.

Amanda will open the exhibit with a special Open Book author/photographer event discussing and showcasing her work. The interview will be conducted by WGTE Public Media personality Haley Taylor, and be followed by audience Q and A. Copies of Chasing Light will be available for purchase and to have signed by the author.

Chasing Light is a vibrant and intimate collection of photographs— many of which have never been seen before—along with personal reflections and stories from Michelle Obama’s Official White House Photographer (2013-2017), Amanda Lucidon, the only female photographer during the Obama Administration and the 12th female White House photographer in history.

The event is free and open to the public. We ask that you RSVP, so a door count can be estimated. Admittance to the event will be on a first come, first served basis that night. Guests may begin lining up for the event at 5:30. Limited overflow seating will be available as well. To RSVP, please click here.
