Terry Tempest Williams Describes Mystery of Her Late Mother's Journals

Other People with Brad Listi is a free, twice-weekly podcast featuring in-depth interviews with today's leading authors. The show focuses on the writers themselves -- their lives, their struggles, their successes, and how they approach their work.

Here's an excerpt from the latest episode, #149, a stirring conversation with Terry Tempest Williams, award-winning writer, activist, environmentalist, and teacher. Terry is the author of the environmental literature classic Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place, and her latest book, When Women Were Birds: Fifty-Four Variations on Voice, is due out in paperback from Picador on February 26.


Thanks for listening. Enjoy.
