An Evening with Terry Tempest Williams, author of The Hour of Land, on Friday, July 29th at *7:00pm* at *Boulder Public Library's Canyon Theater* (1001 Arapahoe Ave).

About the Book:
America's national parks are breathing spaces in a world in which such spaces are steadily disappearing. Terry Tempest Williams, the author of the environmental classic Refuge and the memoir When Women Were Birds, returns with a literary celebration of our national parks, an exploration of what they mean to us and what we mean to them. From the Grand Tetons in Wyoming to Acadia in Maine, Williams creates a series of lyrical portraits that illuminate the 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 on why wild lands matter to the soul of America.
