The Morris County Historical Society announces a special presentation at Acorn Hall on Sun., Jan. 22, at 1:30 p.m. by fine art and architecture photographer Bruce White. The presentation will feature his new book “At Home in the President’s Neighborhood,” an in-depth photo tour of the historic neighborhood surrounding the White House.

White is a principal photographer for the White House Historical Association and has collaborated on various publications including “The White House: Its Historic Furnishings and First Families,” “White House: An Historic Guide,” and recently, “Tudor Place: An American Treasure.”
“At Home in the President’s Neighborhood” will be available for purchase at $49.95, and signing, at White’s presentation. The cost to attend the presentation is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors, $7 for students, and free for MCHS members.
