Bookstore employee visits White House and President Obama
Ken White, general books manager at the SFSU Bookstore, joined President Obama in the Oval Office on Jan. 20, as part of a delegation that presented the President with a selection of books for the White House Library.
The delegation included representatives from the American Booksellers Association (ABA), a national trade association for independent booksellers. The group presented 11 books to the President, continuing the ABA's long-held tradition of presenting a selection of books to each presidential administration. As a member of the ABA's board of directors, White presented Obama with "Song of Myself: And Other Poems by Walt Whitman,"a collection of poems selected and introduced by Robert Hass.
