On this edition of Northwest Arts Review, we dip into our archives for segments from two interviews with author Timothy Egan, whose fascinating true life crime story Breaking Blue is currently featured on The Bookshelf. Also up are Nathan Weinbender and Dan Webster’s takes on the new sci-fi thriller A Quiet Place, Part II and the final installment of music from our recent Sibling Revelry Kids’ Concert, featuring the Treis family of St. John, Washington.

Timothy Egan is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of nine books including The Big Burn, Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher, The Immortal Irishman, and The Worst Hard Time, which won the 2006 National Book Award for non-fiction. His new book, A Pilgrimage to Eternity: From Canterbury to Rome in Search of a Faith, follows Egan on a personal journey of more than 1000 miles as he considers his own faith and traces the history of Christianity in Europe along the way.

Author Timothy Egan will be in Spokane Thursday, September 13th for a special program at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture (NWMAC) in Spokane. The NWMAC currently has an exhibit of the photographs of Edward S. Curtis, the subject of Egan's 2011 book Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher: The Epic Life and Immortal Photographs of Edward Curtis.

Egan spokne with SPR's Verne Windham about the book, Edward Curtis, and Egan's visit to Spoakne.
