Theodore Roosevelt National Park to Welcome Terry Tempest Williams

A National Park Service Centennial Event

MEDORA, ND: The Theodore Roosevelt Nature and History Association and Theodore Roosevelt National Park invite the public to a special book reading and signing by renowned author Terry Tempest Williams on Sunday, July 24. Tempest Williams will read from her newest book, The Hour of Land. The reading will begin at 6:30 p.m. MDT in the park’s South Unit Visitor Center; a book signing will follow.


Often called “America’s Best Idea,” national parks provide public “breathing spaces in a world in which such spaces are steadily disappearing…The Hour of Land is a literary celebration of our national parks, what they mean to us, and what we mean to them.”

Terry Tempest Williams is an award winning author, including Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place, Finding Beauty in a Broken World, and When Women Were Birds. She divides her time between Castle Valley, Utah and Moose, Wyoming.

The Theodore Roosevelt Nature and History Association is the national park’s non-profit partner, selling books and other interpretive materials in the park’s visitor centers. Proceeds are donated to the park to support interpretation and research. “Like” TRNHA on Facebook at
