Weekly Giveaway – You may leave, but don’t forget.

Ahhh, the sweet smell of commencement!
Caps and gowns, mortar boards and diplomas. Politicians, celebrities, and business men address the graduates with pithy, sometimes inspirational, sometimes trite, and usually a coda to a turning point in your life.
Or someone you know.
And what about the memories of your years? Is it all encapsulated in a yearbook? Did you really get to know those people around you ?
dawoud_bey_class_pictures2Dawoud Bey has created a book of photographs, Class Picture, that may help you think again about your high school years. No matter when they ended.
With an insight you’ll never see in your yearbook, he would spend a few weeks at each school, and usually have 45 minutes with each student per sitting.
They would write out an autobiography, which is included in this book, to give you an additional insight into the teenagers whose life you only see from their outward presentations. Yep, the old “don’t judge a book by it’s cover” is defined right here in this volume.
So as you move on in your life, look at these photographs and maybe, just maybe, your memory will be shifted and enhanced, courtesy of the subjects in this book.

Details on getting a copy of this book for free, will be included in the NEWSLETTER this week, so you might as well sign up now.
It’s doesn’t cost you anything and we will never sell your email address. ever.
