Book group to explore iconic photographs

Timothy Egan’s Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher: The Epic Life and Immortal Photographs of Edward Curtis will be featured at the Wilton Historical Society, 224 Danbury Road, when its history reading group, Booked for Lunch, meets on Tuesday, June 7, from noon to 1:30.

Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher tells the story behind the iconic photographs of Edward Curtis, who gave up a successful photography career in the summer of 1900 to capture the Native American nation on film before it disappeared.

All are welcome to the Booked for Lunch meeting, which is a brown bag lunch, with beverages and desserts provided by the historical society.

There is no charge, but registration is required. To register, email or call 203-762-7257.
