Pencil This In: Vivian Maier: Out Of The Shadows Book Signing

By Amy Cavanaugh in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 25, 2012 4:00PM

2012_11_23_vivienmaier.jpg It's been a few years since Vivian Maier's Chicago street photography was discovered at an estate sale and received an exhibition at the Chicago Cultural Center and love from every media outlet in town. Now, there's a book about the photographer, Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows, by Richard Cahan and Michael Williams.

The pair looked at census records, ship manifests, and conducted interviews with people who knew Maier. Add in 300 photographs, and the result is Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows, which the authors will be discussing and signing at 6:30 p.m. on November 29 at After-Words New and Used Books, at 23 E. Illinois St. There will be wine and small bites as well.
