Terry Tempest Williams, a passionate activist and conservationist whose work is rooted in the landscape and the spiritual traditions of the American West, is also a sharp-eyed critic of one of its most enduring myths: rugged individualism. “For those of us who live there,” she says, “we know that’s not true, that our identities are diverse and deep and communal.” From her home in Castle Valley, Utah, Williams visits Las Vegas to discuss her most recent book, Erosion: Essays of Undoing, a deft intersection of assaults on public lands alongside an erosion of commitment to the open space of democracy. A recipient of fellowships from the Lannan and Guggenheim Foundations, Williams was featured in Ken Burns’ PBS series The National Parks: America's Best Idea and in the PBS documentary series The West. In 2014, the Sierra Club honored her with their highest award, the John Muir Award. Williams will be interviewed on stage by Téa Obreht, author of the international bestseller The Tiger's Wife, finalist for the National Book Award.

This event is co-sponsored by Black Mountain Institute and the Las Vegas Jewish Film Festival.
