Washington’s most important bookseller is offering an exclusive, one-of-a-kind look at the historic moment when President Barack Obama became the first black president.
The book, “The White House Book Sale,” is being published by the Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of American History and will be available online for $24.95.
The book, which includes over 1,500 titles, will be the first in a series of three books that will feature an in-depth look at “The President’s First Year in the White House,” said White House spokesperson Jill Daugherty.
The White Houses inaugural address will be included in the book.
“The book is a special piece of the Smithsonian collection that explores the extraordinary experiences of a momentous occasion and the stories behind the first events that shaped the nation’s history,” Daugher said.
“It is a must-have for any American, whether they are an avid reader or a casual reader.”
The book will be on display at the White Houses Visitor Center and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
The president’s inaugural address is available for free, and it will be made available online on Nov. 3.
The Smithsonian Institute also announced the book’s availability, which is expected to begin sometime in November.
The text will be printed in the US and be available for viewing in foreign languages.
