A naturalist and advocate for freedom of speech, she shows how environmental issues are social issues that become matters of justice.

Williams' presentation will include readings from her works, an on-stage discussion with a faculty member and audience Q & A. It begins at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10, in the Egan Library.
