As a part of its historic exhibition, EDWARD CURTIS: THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN, the Muskegon Museum of Art will present a lecture at the Frauenthal Center by National Book Award Winner & New York Times Op-Ed Writer Timothy Egan who will speak about his 2012 award-winning book, Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher: The Epic Life and Immortal Photographs of Edward Curtis. Egan’s story of the life of famed photographer, Edward Curtis, has won praise for its compelling narrative, graceful prose, originality, and the humanizing of both Curtis and the Native Americans he photographed and admired. This biography won the Carnegie Medal for the Best Nonfiction Book of 2012. Egan will be available to autograph books following the lecture. Egan worked for 18 years as a writer for The New York Times, first as the Pacific Northwest correspondent and then as a national enterprise reporter. He continues to write a lively opinion column for the Times.
