Join us for the launch event for the highly anticipated biography of a complex figure in the American cultural and political landscape.

The first biography of this seminal artist, written by renowned historian Linda Gordon, DOROTHEA LANGE: A Life Beyond Limits [W. W. Norton & Company, 2009] is a sweeping account of this fascinating photographer’s life and work.

Linda Gordon is the Florence Kelley Professor of History at New York University. She is the author of numerous books and won the Bancroft Prize for The Great Arizona Orphan Abduction.
