Stories have the power to create social change and inspire community. Join award winning writer and activist Terry Tempest Williams for a reading and a conversation with Professor Elena Creef. Williams is an American author, conservationist, and activist. Her writing is rooted in the American West and has been significantly influenced by the arid landscape of her native Utah and its Mormon culture. Her work ranges from issues of ecology and wilderness preservation, to women's health, to exploring our relationship to culture and nature. The event will be held on Tuesday, April 24 at 4:30pm in the Hay Amphitheater (rain location: Tishman Commons). It is presented by the Ecology of Place Initiative and co-sponsored by the Environmental Studies Program, Office of Religious and Spiritual Life, Women and Gender Studies, and Peace and Justice Program.
