Beyond Words is very pleased to welcome Phil Bergerson from Canada who will talk about American Artifacts which has just been published by Black Dog. Bergerson describes his approach as “sifting through the remains of a culture, through the shards of artifacts left behind by a rushing humanity as it made its way through the streets of a tumultuous America”. The book includes text by photographer Nathan Lyons and by Canada’s leading writer Margaret Atwood. The talk will be followed by a book signing.
