The Queen Next Door: Aretha Franklin Book Signing

December 30, 2019


Award winning photojournalist, Linda Solomon, held a book signing at Saks Fifth Avenue, Somerset Collection, Troy for her latest work, “The Queen Next Door: Aretha Franklin, An Intimate Portrait.” Franklin’s family members, Earline Franklin and Brenda Franklin-Corbett, were on hand to sign books as well. Proceeds from the event benefited Pictures of Hope, Solomon's nationally acclaimed program which introduces children in shelters and charities across the United States to photography. Pictures of Hope has helped children in 50 cities with the highest populations of homeless children and youth.
