Annie Proulx

October 7, 7:30 pm

Benaroya Hall, Taper Auditorium

Pulitzer Prize- and National Book Award-winning author of The Shipping News and superlative short stories such as “Brokeback Mountain” and the collection Fine Just the Way It Is: Wyoming Stories 3.

“The wild country–indigo jags of mountain, grassy plain everlasting, tumbled stones like fallen cities, the flaring roll of sky–provokes a spiritual shudder. It is like a deep note that cannot be heard but is felt, it is like a claw in the gut…

…Other cultures have camped here a while and disappeared. Only earth and sky matter. Only the endlessly repeated flood of morning light. You begin to see that God does not owe us much beyond that.”

— Annie Proulx (Close Range : Wyoming Stories)

Tickets are $10 for students and $21.25-$42.50 for WLA members (a 15% savings!). More information is available at www.lectures.org. Please call 206.621.2230 to order your tickets.
