CLOSE ENOUGH FOR GOVERNMENT WORK: AMERICA'S PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARIES
CLOSE ENOUGH FOR GOVERNMENT WORK: AMERICA’S PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARIES, to be published by Loconeal press in early 2016, covers libraries both sanctioned and organized by US/state/local governments as well as ancillary ones, such as the Dan Quayle Museum and the Gallery of Also-Rans. It aims to satisfy all constituents by pairing a thorough history with an entertaining travel guide. Along with little-known information and a detailed description of the library's overall setup and exhibits, each chapter will discuss the library's inception as well as any controversy surrounding its establishment.
This unique project, an essential part of any library and travel collection, is being funded through a crowdfunding campaign. Please consider and pass along to all interested parties.
Book specifications: Approximately 40 chapters, 250-300 msp, photos
