National Writers Series Presents

An Evening with former Official White House Photographer Pete Souza


Dec 01, 2022

PLEASE NOTE: This event does NOT take place at the City Opera House. We will be gathering at the Traverse City High School West auditorium (5376 N Long Lake Rd, Traverse City, MI 49685).

Tickets to this event include one copy of The West Wing and Beyond. Options are: one ticket with one book or two tickets with one book.

Go behind the scenes of the West Wing—and into the Oval Office, the Situation Room, aboard Air Force One, and beyond—in intimate detail with #1 bestselling author and presidential photographer Pete Souza.
Pete Souza has spent more time in the Oval Office than any person in history, former two-term Presidents excluded. In The West Wing and Beyond, Souza 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.
