Ursula K. Le Guin


Schedule of Public Appearances — 2008

This year I will be doing some book-touring on the West Coast for Lavinia, but I don't travel much, I don't travel far, and I don't make speeches. I have speeched and keynoted and paneled and all that for several decades, and feel that now it's other people's turn. Unless you are the King of Sweden, please don't ask me to come give a talk.
