In celebration of the publication of Chasing Light: Michelle Obama through the Lens of a White House Photographer, Amanda Lucidon, the official White House photographer (2012 – 2016), will be visiting libraries and schools across the country to speak about her work and the importance of arts education. A traveling exhibition of photographs from the book will be shown at select libraries, including Brooklyn Public Library, Princeton Public Library, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, and Chicago Public Library.

In cities where Amanda Lucidon will be speaking at libraries, she will also visit Turnaround Arts schools. Founded by former First Lady and the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, the Turnaround Arts program infuses the arts into struggling schools as a powerful strategy to turn them around.
