The Library welcomes award winning photojournalist Pete Souza to discuss his book, "Obama: An Intimate Portrait."

The New York Times #1 bestselling "Obama: An Intimate Portrait" reproduces more than 300 of Souza's most iconic photographs with fine-art print quality in an oversize collectible format. Together they document the most consequential hours of the Presidency--including the historic image of President Obama and his advisors in the Situation Room during the bin Laden mission--alongside unguarded moments with the President's family, his encounters with children, interactions with world leaders and cultural figures, and more.
