TTWilliams -
Finding Beauty in a Broken World

Finding Beauty in a Broken World
Wednesday, December 3 at 7:00 PM

In her most original, provocative and eloquently moving book since Refuge, Terry Tempest Williams gives us a luminous chronicle of finding beauty in a broken world. Always an impassioned and far-sighted advocate for a just relationship between the natural world and humankind, Williams has broadened her concerns over the past several years to include a reconfiguration of family and community in her search for a deeper understanding of what it means to be human in an era of physical and spiritual fragmentation.

Calvin Trillin - Deciding The Next Decider

Deciding the Next Decider: The 2008 Presidential Race in Rhyme
Saturday, December 6 at 7:00 PM

In the form that made bestsellers of Obliviously On He Sails and A Heckuva Job, the witty and irascible Trillin recreates in verse all the lowlights of this year's endless campaign slog.

Trillin has been a staff writer for the New Yorker since 1963. He is the author of numerous books, including About Alice, Family Man, American Stories, and Remembering Denny, a New York Times bestseller.
