Terry Tempest Williams

Thursday, July 27, 2017 - 7:00p.m. to 9:00p.m.

America’s national parks are breathing spaces in a world in which such spaces are steadily disappearing. Now Terry Tempest Williams, the author of the environmental classic “Refuge” and the beloved memoir “When Women Were Birds,” presents “The Hour of Land,” a literary celebration of our national parks, an exploration of what they mean to us and what we mean to them. Part memoir, part natural history, and part social critique, “The Hour of Land” is a meditation and a manifesto on why wild lands matter to the soul of America.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
