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.

In collaboration with Literary Arts, a tribute will be held Wednesday, June 13, 2018, 7:30 p.m., at Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, free and open to the public. Tickets are claimed, but you may visit the Literary Arts website to join the waiting list.

From Literary Arts: “The event will feature tributes from writers and friends who represent the wide-ranging influence Le Guin has had on international literature for more than 50 years, including Margaret Atwood (by video), Molly Gloss, Walidah Imarisha, Jonathan Lethem, Kelly Link, China Miéville, and Daniel José Older. Andrea Schulz, Le Guin's editor at Viking Books, and Julie Phillips, Le Guin's biographer, will also speak at the tribute. The tribute will include rare documentary footage of Le Guin, along with photos and images from her life and work.”

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

Audubon Society of Portland
