The election of Barack Obama as forty-fourth president of the United States marked an unprecedented step forward in American history, shattering racial barriers and forever altering the political landscape. No other news source better captured the exceptional moments of his life and campaign than The New York Times, America's premier newspaper and the winner of ninety-eight Pulitzer Prizes for journalism. In partnership with The New York Times, Callaway is honored to announce the publication of a groundbreaking new book: Obama: The Historic Journey Young Reader's Edition. Available in a jacketed hardcover that will cover the inauguration in a full chapter of text and photographs, Obama includes an astounding array of visual imagery, along with in-depth reporting and explanatory graphics that have been specially adapted for youngsters. From his unique childhood to the definitive moments of his campaigns, children will be fascinated to learn about the "skinny kid with the funny name" who rose to become one of America's youngest presidents.
