The Hemingway Distinguished Lecture: Terry Tempest Williams

presented by
The Community Library

This event has reached its capacity and is now SOLD OUT.

Terry Tempest Williams, a writer who has charted a new course for environmental writing and the literature of the American West, will deliver The Community Library’s 3rd annual Hemingway Distinguished Lecture on Thursday, July 11, at 6 p.m. Her many books include The Hour of Land: A Personal Topography of American’s National ParksWhen Women Were Birds: Fifty-Four Variations on Voice; and Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place. A new book, Erosion: Essays of Undoing, is forthcoming this fall. Williams has been called a “citizen writer” and is a passionate advocate for freedom of speech. She also is a gifted teacher, serving most recently as writer-in-residence at the Harvard Divinity School and previously as the Annie Clark Tanner Fellow in the University of Utah’s Environmental Humanities Graduate Program, which she co-founded.

The Hemingway Distinguished Lecture is presented each July by The Community Library, honoring the month of Ernest Hemingway’s birth and his death. The Lecture celebrates the power of words and the creative spirit in a landscape that Hemingway loved. The previous Lectures have been presented by Anthony Doerr and Sherman Alexie.

This event is SOLD OUT.

A book-signing will follow the event.
