Stephen Tatum | co-author of Morta Las Vegas: CSI and the Problem of the West

Join Stephen Tatum for a reading and signing of his co-authored nonfiction book, Morta Las Vegas: CSI and the Problem of the West. 

"Sin City" has consistently been regarded by artists and cultural critics as a symbol of indulgence. Here, the authors consider Las Vegas and the problem of regional identity in the American West through a case study of a single episode of the television crime drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Delving deep into the interwoven events of the episode titled “4 × 4,” the authors draw connections between the city—a layered and complex world—and the violent, uncanny mysteries of a crime scene.
