Terry Tempest Williams

Terry Tempest Williams signs a copy of her new book after a July reading in Missoula.

If reading Terry Tempest Williams’ prose is like watching an inscrutable tapestry unfold, then to hear her speak is to be threaded onto her magical loom and woven into a story. It is a lived and felt experience.

Instead of watching Donald Trump’s acceptance speech on a recent Thursday night in July, I went to hear Williams share pieces from her new book, “The Hour of Land - A Personal Topography of America’s National Parks” at the UC Ballroom in Missoula, MT.
