Author, naturalist to speak at library at 7 p.m. July 28

Bud Werner Memorial Library presents an evening with author Terry Tempest Williams at 7 p.m. July 28 in Library Hall.

Tempest Williams will speak about her new book, “The Hour of Land,” an ode to our national parks during the celebration of the National Park Service centennial. Doors for this free event will open at 6 p.m.

Through 12 carefully chosen parks, from Yellowstone, in Wyoming, to Acadia, in Maine, to Big Bend, in Texas, Tempest Williams creates a series of lyrical portraits that illuminate the unique grandeur of each place while delving into what it means to shape a landscape with its own evolutionary history into something of our own making.

Part memoir, part natural history and part social critique, “The Hour of Land” is a meditation and manifesto about why wild lands matter to the soul of America — how our national parks stand at the intersection of humanity and wildness.

At this Library Author Series event, books will be available for sale and author signing. Visit for more information.
