About the Book
This contains a series of illustrated letters written to President Obama. Chicago artist Megan Williamson created these over the 8 years of Obama's time in office. The intention of this project was to send missives from everyday life back in Chicago to help Obama pierce the DC bubble and stay in touch with what was happening back home.
