Ursula K. Le Guin

21 October 1929–22 January 2018


Public Tribute

Dear readers and friends,

We are deeply honored by the outpouring of affection and admiration for Ursula and her life’s work.

Many have asked whether we are planning a public event to commemorate and honor Ursula; others have asked where one could direct donations in her name.

We are working with Literary Arts to plan a tribute, to be held in June 2018 in Portland, free and open to the public. Please visit the website’s Calendar for more information in coming weeks.

As many know from her writings, Ursula often visited, and passionately loved, Malheur County in southeast Oregon. Donations to organizations supporting and protecting this region may be made in her honor.

With gratitude,

Ursula’s family


Donations may be made in Ursula’s name to:

Audubon Society of Portland
Please specify that the donation is for Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and Harney County

Friends of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge

Malheur Field Station

Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin

A Documentary by Arwen Curry


Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin

Update: 1 December 2017

Editor Juli Vizza is joining us for our last couple of weeks of editing. Juli, who really gets it, is helping to put finishing touches on the visual sequences, and is cutting in new animations, graphic sequences, and archival footage and stills as they trickle in. Will Fritch continues to work on the score.

SO WHEN IS THE MOVIE GOING TO BE DONE, ALREADY, you ask? We are getting there, truly. In January 2018, we have a date with crack sound engineer Jim LeBrecht to smooth out ten years of uneven levels. Next, also in January, is our online editing session, where we’ll fix all the technical glitches, correct the colors, add closed captioning, and otherwise get ready for festivals, theatrical screenings, and eventual broadcast. We don’t yet have a date for broadcast, but will share it as soon as we do.

It’s chapter by chapter around here. Thanks as always for turning the pages with us.
