The annual Evening at Egan Fall Lecture and Presentation Series starts this week at the University of Alaska Southeast with author and activist Terry Tempest Williams. Williams is a "citizen writer," who speaks out on behalf of an ethical stance toward life. 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.
