Labyrinth Live at the Library presents a talk by Emmet Gowin.

More nuclear bombs have been detonated in America than in any other country in the world. Between 1951 and 1992, the Nevada National Security Test Site was the primary location for these activities, withstanding more than a thousand nuclear tests that left swaths of the American Southwest resembling the moon. In The Nevada Test Site, Emmet Gowin presents staggering aerial photographs of this powerfully evocative place.
