Each month, get to know different cultural innovators in Chicago. Co-authors Michael Williams and Richard Cahan discuss the discovery of the mysterious “nanny photographer’s” work, first seen in 2009.

A book signing follows the talk.

Michael Williams and Richard Cahan, co-authors of Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows, have collaborated on seven other books, including Real Chicago, Richard Nickel’s Chicago: Photographs of a Lost City, Who We Were: A Snapshot History of America, Edgar Miller and the Handmade Home, and The Lost Panoramas: When Chicago Changed Its River and the Land Beyond. They own CityFiles Press, a Chicago publishing company that focuses on art and photography books.
