Booklet Promoting Author Barack Obama from 1991 Found

The former literary agent for Barack Obama, Acton & Dystel, released a promotional booklet published in 1991 that features Obama in it with a photo and a biography. The biography from the booklet, which can be read further down in this post, described Obama as being “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”

The booklet was handed out to ‘business colleagues’ within the publishing industry and it has the biographies of 89 other authors who are clients of Acton & Dystel. The booklet helps to promote the first book from Obama, Journeys in Black and White, which Obama decided not to publish. He instead then published Dreams from My Father.
