Christmas at the White House
The lovely Jennifer Pickens recently sent me a copy of her fabulous new book Christmas at the White House. Jennifer, a fellow Texan, spent more than four years researching and writing this wonderful book. Christmas at the White House beautifully documents the lavish private and public Christmas celebrations, decorations, themes and traditions spanning half of a century.
Illustrated with more than 500 photographs, many of which have never been viewed by the public before, this book is a real jewel. At Jennifer’s insistence the book was printed and bound in the United States by Williamson Printing located in Dallas, Texas. Williamson is a premier 125-year-old “green” printer using earth friendly dyes, 100% wind generated power, and recycled paper that contains 10% recovered fiber content, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
A portion of the proceeds from this book will go to the White House Historical Association.
