Amanda Lucidon, one of the few women photographers to work in the White House and who spent four years photographing former First Lady Michelle Obama, will speak at New Orleans Public Library's Keller branch Dec. 14.

Lucidon will talk about her recent book Chasing Light: Michelle Obama Through the Lens of a White House Photographer, which collects dozens of never-before-seen candids of Obama in a variety of settings, from the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts to the White House's South Lawn to a Liberian high school. The book also includes short narratives from Lucidon describing the moment pictures were taken, as well as her personal impressions of the famously fashionable first lady.

You can check out Lucidon chatting with CNN's Anderson Cooper about this book in this short video, which also includes a few sample images.

The event takes place from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. It's free to attend. Photographs from the book also are on display at the library from Dec. 11 until Jan. 4, 2018.
