White House History Live: The White House: An Historic Guide - Creation and Evolution of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy’s Vision

Join us in learning more about White House History right from your own home. Our Facebook Live series, White House History Live, delves into the stories that make up the history of the Executive Mansion.

Join the Association’s Chief Publishing Officer, Marcia Anderson as she discusses The White House: An Historic Guide with Colleen Shogan, Senior Vice President and Director of the David M. Rubenstein National Center for White House History. As the title celebrates sixty years continuously in print this summer, Marcia Anderson will share her memories of nearly twenty five years overseeing the editorial and production process, years in which the guide has evolved while continuing to fulfill Mrs. Kennedy’s vision in the twenty-first century. The conversation will highlight major turning points in the scope, purpose, and production of the guide, including the impact of 9/11 and the transition from hot type and film to electronic layouts and digital photography.

This event will be live streamed on the White House Historical Association's Facebook and YouTube pages starting at 5 pm ET on August 2nd.
