Timothy Eagan to sign books in Issaquah
November 13, 2012
In the late 19th century, Seattle photographer Edward Curtis captured enduring photos of American Indians — and then the once-celebrated photographer faded into history.
Author Timothy Egan, a correspondent for The New York Times, chronicles the colorful Curtis in the biography “Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher.” Eagan is scheduled to sign copies at Costco, 1801 10th Ave. N.W., from 1-3 p.m. Nov. 17.
Eagan received the National Book Award for Nonfiction for “The Worst Hard Time,” a 2006 account about people surviving the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. “The Worst Hard Time” also received a Washington State Book Award.
