Honor the centennial of the National Park Service by joining environmentalist Terry Tempest Williams as she returns to Point Reyes to read from her new book, The Hour of Land. Enjoy a literary celebration of our national parks, what they mean to us, and what we mean to them. Through 12 carefully chosen parks, from Yellowstone in Wyoming to Acadia in Maine to Big Bend in Texas, Tempest Williams creates a series of lyrical portraits that illuminate the unique grandeur of each place while delving into what it means to shape a landscape with its own evolutionary history into something of our own making. Part memoir, part natural history, and part social critique, The Hour of Land is a meditation and manifesto on why wild lands matter to the soul of America. Presented by Point Reyes Books as a benefit for Point Reyes National Seashore Association, Black Mountain Circle, and the Mesa Refuge. Come for the reading ($25) or dinner and reception before the readingĀ  ($125).
