Tim DeChristopher will talk about his act of nonviolent civil disobedience in which he disrupted a government oil and gas lease auction in 2008 in order to protect fragile lands in southern Utah from long-term damage, an act that led to his imprisonment for 21 months. The talk will be followed by a conversation with Terry Tempest Williams.
This event is part of the Lannan In Pursuit of Cultural Freedom series.
