SOLD OUT - Pete Souza at Dominican University Performing Arts Center
Please join The Book Table for an evening with Pete Souza, Obama's Chief Official White House Photographer. Souza will offer a dazzling multi-media presentation that will leave you nostalgic for the Obama years.

When Pete Souza left the White House in 2017, he didn't know what it meant to throw shade but he started doing it almost immediately on his personal Instagram account, posting his photographs from the Obama years with captions that vividly define the contrast between the Obama White House and President Trump's administration. Media organizations caught on and couldn't stop talking about Souza's posts, with New York magazine calling them a master class in shade, CNN describing them as a silent, social media, shade-throwing protest told in visuals, and Politico naming him King of Instagram Shade. Souza's following on Instagram has since grown to nearly two million people. He has also become a potent force in American life, offering incisive political criticism alongside powerful reminders of the best our country has to offer.

SHADE is a portrait in contrasts, telling the tale of two presidencies through a series of powerful visual juxtapositionswith Souzas unforgettable images of President Obama delivering new power and meaning when framed by tweets, headlines, quotes, and other material from the first 500 days of the Trump administration. The book responds to fan demand for a book that captures Souzas voice on Instagram, and will include more than one hundred photographs that did not appear in his previous book. More than a sharp compendium of clapbacks, SHADE is a touchstone to an era of greater integrity in our politics. Souzas work is a stirring reminder of the highest American values we share, giving us the courage to stand up and speak out for what we believe in.

Please note, due to the size of the audience, there will not be a book signing at this event, but specially designed autographed  bookplates will be provided for each ticket holder alongside their free copy of SHADE. Sorry, no personalization.

The author kindly requests no video or audio recording during the event. Limited still photographs, without flash, will be permitted during the presentation.
