Thunder & Lightning Redniss

Lauren Redniss, author of Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie, debuts her new title. Developed while she was an artist in residence at the Museum, Thunder & Lightning: Weather, Past, Present, Future brings Redniss’s unique style to a journey to the driest desert on Earth, to an island in the Arctic, and beyond. She considers the danger and beauty of weather, how it informs our history, and the forces that drive these meteorological events.
