Meet the Author

Renowned photographer Joel Meyerowitz is a Guggenheim fellow and an NEA and an NEH award winner. His photographs have shown in major museums, including the Museum of Modern Art. He was the only photographer granted access to Ground Zero, where he persistently captured both the devastation at the World Trade Center site as well as the dedication of the many workers who toiled there. He recently was commissioned by the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation to document, interpret, and celebrate the city's 29,000 acres of parks in the five boroughs. He is the first photographer to document NYC parks since the 1930s, when they were photographed as part of FDR's WPA program. Meyerowitz's work has been the subject of 15 books, including Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks; Aftermath: World Trade Center Archive; and Cape Light.
 
Maggie Barrett is the author of three novels and a collection of short stories. Her play, Give it Up, based on one of her novels, was performed Off Broadway.
