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.
