Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher wins The Chautauqua Prize

June 6, 2013

Short Nights

Tim Egan is the 2013 winner of The Chautauqua prize for Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher. The best-selling author of six books and Pulitzer Prize winner is thrilled to receive the prize, especially given Chautauqua’s history as a “summer retreat for lovers of history, art, brisk argument, and the written word.” Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher is a nonfiction account of the American Indian photographer Edward Curtis’ quest to document the history of 80 American Indian tribes. It received glowing reviews from The Boston Globe, The Wall Street Journal, and Los Angeles Times. The Chautauqua reviewers call his novel an “exhaustive” and “compelling” contribution to the literary arts. Egan will receive $7,500 and an all expenses paid one-week summer residency at Chautauqua, a not-for-profit educational and cultural center in southwestern New York.

You can find Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and your local Indie bookstore.
