Futernick will discuss her new book 13 Presidents,published by Slimvolume in September 2016, with artist and writer Steve Kado, which documents her ten thousand mile journey across America in 2014. Following a specific route, the road trip visits 13 different presidential libraries, documenting them through photographs and short stories, weaving together what the press release describes as a “personal narrative with wider cultural observation, forming a vision of America that is both invented and true.”
Futernick is an artist and writer based in London. Previ0us books include How I Taught Umberto Eco to Love the Bomb (RA Editions and California Fever Press, 2015) and The Watergate Complex (Rice + Toye, 2015).
