ABOUT THE EVENT:  “I have learned that even without a shared language, it’s easy to let people know that their children are beautiful, their homes are lovely… and that their stories are worth sharing with the world” ~ Annie Griffiths

Experience the life of a photographer on assignment for National Geographic Magazine—and meet a true pioneer who figured out her own way to balance work and family.  One of National Geographic’s first female staff photographers, Annie Griffiths has worked on every continent except Antarctica, while also raising two children.  Perhaps the only professional photographer ever to pack her camera gear in Pampers, she found a way to stay close to her kids without putting the brakes on her career—even if it meant bringing the two along with her on assignment in places as distant as the ruins of Petra in Jordan or the Galápagos Islands.

National Geographic Photographer Annie Griffiths discloses the secrets of a peripatetic life... revealing in often hilarious detail how she managed to juggle two children, bulky cases of camera equipment and everything needed for a nurturing family life as she traveled to far-flung destinations around the world.  Annie was one of the first female photographers hired at the National Geographic Society.  When her children were born, she kept right on going—and this book is a loving compendium of the wisdom she gained.  It chronicles three decades of international travel, a moveable family, and the art she created along the way.  Annie shares intimate moments, lessons learned from other women and men she met, and all the fun and heartache of the experience.  Her quirky sense of humor and many touching stories will delight and excite readers who are making and maintaining career decisions for themselves and their families.
