Terry Tempest Williams (10.12.2017)

TERRY TEMPEST WILLIAMS, environmental author and activist, will discuss her most recent book, The Hour of Land—a meditation on the necessary majesty of America’s national parks. When Frederick Law Olmsted designed America’s first urban park system here in Buffalo, he understood that parks not only “refresh and delight the eye” but also the “mind and spirit.” In keeping with Olmsted’s philosophy, Williams’s poetic language and soulful explorations of parks as “portals and thresholds of wonder” compel us to confront our stewardship of natural resources.
