What used to be small talk is now survival. Talking about the weather is at the heart of where we are and who we are becoming in this climate crisis. When we hear that the world is on fire, those of us living in the American West understand this not as metaphor but fact. Terry Tempest Williams will address this moment in time as we think about what it means to live and love with a broken heart. Now is the time to face the what is, not what once was as we find the strength to not look away. Finding beauty in a broken world is creating beauty in the world we find together.
