Pete Souza Launches New Book: The West Wing and Beyond

Pete Souza Launches New Book: The West Wing and Beyond – Sept 27, 2022

In Pete Souza‘s newest book, he takes you behind the scenes of the West Wing—and into the Oval Office, the Situation Room, aboard Air Force One, and beyond—in intimate detail. He brings the inner sanctum of the American Presidency to life and goes behind the scenes to share never-before-seen photographs and stories of life in the White House and traveling with the President across the country and around the world.

Pete is a #1 bestselling author and was the Chief Official White House Photographer for President Obama for all eight years and an Official White House Photographer for President Reagan. Pete has spent more time in the Oval Office than almost any person in history, former two-term Presidents excluded. During the Obama administration alone, Souza was inside the presidential bubble for more than 25,000 hours and made nearly 2 million photographs.

Focusing on the people, processes, and traditions that define our nation’s highest office, his book will put you inside the Presidency, looking out–and deliver a new view of the Secret Service, the seriousness of the Situation Room, and even the waste-paper basketball games played in rare moments of downtime outside the Oval.

This gorgeous new book is available at your favorite bookstore and you can order it here.
