CenterStage Event to Feature Environmental Activist Terry Tempest Williams

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.
