DESCRIPTION
   Please join us for a lecture and book signing with U.S. News and World Report contributor Kenneth T. Walsh for his new book, Ultimate Insiders: White House Photographers and How They Shape History (Publish Date: October 13, 2017). This event is free to attend, however books must be purchased in the Reagan Library Museum Store to receive signature. Books may be pre-purchased during the reservation process.
   Virtually unknown to the public or historians, White House photographers have developed amazing access to the Presidents of the United States over the past half-century. In this book, long-time White House Correspondent Kenneth T. Walsh tells their stories, emphasizing observations about the presidents the photographers got to know so well along with other key figures close to those presidents-including the First Ladies, members of Congress, and important world leaders.
   This book shows how official White House photographers have morphed into ultimate insiders within the American presidency, allowed to observe and take pictures of nearly everything Chief Executives do related to their job. Acting not only as image makers but as visual historians, they have built pictorial chronicles of the presidencyintimate narratives of America’s leaders in public and private, showing how they dealt with everyday life as well as moments of great crisis and opportunity. From children playing in the Oval Office to sending troops into harm’s way, images created by White House photographers can make or break a presidential administration as well as define an era.
   Ken Walsh covers the White House and politics for U.S. News. He writes the daily blog “Ken Walsh’s Washington,” for usnews.com, and “The Presidency” column for the U.S. News Weekly.
