SALLogoThe author of 13 books, Rebecca Solnit writes on art, landscape, public and collective life, ecology, politics, hope, meandering, reverie, memory, and the power of story. Her most recent work, The Faraway Nearby, explores the ways we make our lives out of stories, and how we are connected by empathy, by narrative, and by imagination. Her earlier books include River of Shadows: Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West (2004), for which she received a Guggenheim, the National Book Critics Circle Award in criticism, and the Lannan Literary Award.

Presented by: Seattle Arts & Lectures as part of its Literary/Arts Series.
