IN PRINT: PhotoNOLA Book Signing takes place Friday, December 9, 2011 from 5-7pm at The Historic New Orleans Collection's Williams Research Center, located at 410 Chartres Street in New Orleans' French Quarter.

*Josephine Sacabo's keynote lecture presentation will immediately follow the book signing, from 7-9pm. Several of Sacabo's books will be available for purchase, which the artist will be available to sign following her presentation.
