The Hour of Land: A Personal Topography of America’s National Parks

Saturday, December 2 • 8:00 p.m.


Terry Tempest Williams has been called "a citizen writer," a writer who speaks out eloquently on behalf of an ethical stance toward all life forms. A naturalist and fierce advocate for freedom of speech, she has consistently shown us how environmental issues are social issues that ultimately become matters of justice. "So here is my question," she asks, "what might a different kind of power look like, feel like, and can power be redistributed equitably even beyond our own species?"


“Terry Tempest Williams pleads forcefully on behalf of the natural world, especially national parks, wilderness areas and endangered species and writes as she damn well pleases . . . the author’s trademark poetic prose dominates every page.” – The Washington Post
