Pete Souza has spent more time in the Oval Office than almost any person in history. During the Obama administration alone, Souza was inside the presidential bubble for more than 25,000 hours and made nearly 2 million photographs. The result is an unprecedented view of how our democracy really works. Souza’s The West Wing and Beyond (Voracious) takes you behind the scenes of consequential moments and introduces the people, places, and traditions that define our nation’s highest office — from the national security staff to the White House groundskeeper. It delivers a new appreciation for the Secret Service, the seriousness of the Situation Room, and even the fun of mini basketball games played in rare moments of downtime outside the Oval. Join former Obama White House Photographer Pete Souza as he presents rarely-seen photographs and tells stories from his new book, The West Wing and Beyond: What I Saw Inside the Presidency.
