Sustaining Words
by suzi steffen

Author Terry Tempest Williams comes through Eugene every so often, and her events usually garner quite a large crowd. The UO’s Oregon Humanities Center brings her in at 7:30 pm Tuesday, Nov. 2, in the EMU Ballroom, to kick off its year of themed events around “Sustenance.”

“We’re interpreting sustenance very broadly, anything that nourishes bodies or the Earth, mind, body or spirit,” says OHC director Julia Hedon, “and one of the first writers that came to mind was Terry Tempest Williams.” Last time Williams was here, she spoke to a packed, over-capacity crowd in Beall Hall, and Hedon knows she’ll draw well. The free lecture/reading starts the list of many more UO “sustenance” talks and events. See the full list at
