Literary Event with Timothy Egan and Nancy Pearl

Friends of the Everett Public Library invite you to hear National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize winning author Timothy Egan read from his latest book, Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher: The Epic Life and Immortal Photographs of Edward Curtis, followed by an interview with legendary librarian Nancy Pearl.
