              A richly illustrated celebration of the paintings of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama From the moment of their unveiling at the National Portrait Gallery in early 2018, the portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama have become two of the most beloved artworks of ...our time. Kehinde Wiley's portrait of President Obama and Amy Sherald's portrait of the former first lady have inspired unprecedented responses from the public, and attendance at the museum has more than doubled as visitors travel from near and far to view these larger-than-life paintings. After witnessing a woman drop to her knees in prayer before the portrait of Barack Obama, one guard said, No other painting gets the same kind of reactions. Ever. The Obama Portraits is the first book about the making, meaning, and significance of these remarkable artworks. Richly illustrated with images of the Obama portraits, exclusive pictures of the Obamas with the artists during their sittings, and photos of the historic unveiling ceremony by former White House photographer Pete Souza, this book offers insight into what these paintings can tell us about the history of portraiture and American culture. The book also features a transcript of the unveiling ceremony, which includes moving remarks by the Obamas and the artists, and a reversible dust jacket that allows you to choose which portrait to display on the outside. An inspiring history of the creation and impact of the Obama portraits, this fascinating book speaks to the power of art-especially portraiture-to bring people together and promote cultural change. Published in association with the National Portrait Gallery, Washington, DC

After retrieving their treasure cache, Jean Lafitte and his brother, Pierre sail off into a fog bank. The ship's cook frightened by the fog invokes a voodoo spell that moves the vessel... and crew from the nineteenth century to the present. Without realizing they have moved forward in time they board and seize a tugboat towing barges on the Mississippi River to replenish their provisions. Once they do this, they discover they cannot reverse the spell. Trapped now in the twenty-first century, the Lafittes recruit members of the tug's crew to guide them through the strange and baffling world surrounding them.As they struggle to adjust to life in present-day Memphis with their newfound guides, Jean makes a startling discovery. His pregnant wife, trapped now in the Nineteenth century, has a condition that requires treatment in a modern hospital to save both her and the child. They must now discover the process that moved them through time to rescue her. A cast of characters including New Orleans street hustlers, talking crows, scientists, and Nineteenth-century Navy pirate hunters cross their paths to block their quest or help them along on their mission. Join them on this rollicking journey through time.
