Terry Tempest Williams, an environmental activist and author, will be featured in “The Hour of Land: A Personal Topography of America’s National Parks” on Saturday at CenterStage.

Her book has been called a love letter to America’s national parks. Reston Community Center’s website published the following biographical information about Williams:

A naturalist and fierce advocate for freedom of speech, she has consistently shown us how environmental issues are social issues that ultimately become matters of justice. “So here is my question,” she asks, “what might a different kind of power look like, feel like, and can power be redistributed equitably even beyond our own species?”

The event will begin at 8 p.m. Tickets for Reston residents are $15 and $20 for all other. Purchase tickets online. For more information, call 703-390-6167 or visit RCC’s website.

    “. . . can power be redistributed equitably even beyond our own species?”

    1) Never, ever trust the bears and wolves. They will eat your lunch first chance they get.

    2) Is this woman just “interesting” or altogether whacko?

    • Bah

      You can bet she wants to be in charge of determining what is “equitable” and how things should be “redistributed” though. Lefties always imagine themselves as the Commissar, never the Kulak.

    • Greg

      With a middle name of “Tempest,” there can be no doubt.

      Also, what is it about people who insist on using three names?

      One rocks, two is normal, and three is whacko. HRC, RBG, etc.

  • Bah

    She sounds preachy and annoying. PASS.

  • Greg

    One more in a ever lengthening list why the Reston Community Center is past its use by date and should be defunded.

    “A naturalist and fierce advocate for freedom of speech”

    True freedom of speech or just her speech?

    • Greg

      Good question. And if it’s all about free speech, why is there an admission charge?

      • OneReally

        Pay off the lake house of course. 🙂
