Terry Tempest Williams' 'Erosion'

Erik Neumann

As an observer of nature, Terry Tempest Williams knows the impact that water, time and wind have a landscape. In her new book “Erosion,” Williams turns her gaze and pen to other types of erosion: the social breakdown of trust, democracy and compassion.

Throughout the collection, Williams asks the question: “How do we find the strength to not look away from all that is breaking our hearts?” She speaks with Doug about the erosion that she sees in our society, and especially about her own erosion the past couple of years as she processed the death of her brother. Williams is the Writer-In-Residence at the Harvard Divinity School; her latest book is “Erosion: Essays of Undoing.” [IndieBound|Amazon|Audible]
