Fire Lookouts on Access Utah Thursday

Thursday on Access Utah we're re-broadcasting a discussion with author Philip Connors about his book, "Fire Season: Field Notes from a Wilderness Lookout." In 2002 Connors left his job as an editor at The Wall Street Journal to work as a fire lookout in New Mexico's Gila National Forest. Connors was to look out over the forest, and sound the alarm at the first sign of smoke. He has spent every summer in the forest since he left Manhattan.

An Hour With Terry Tempest Williams: Access Utah

This episode of Access Utah was rebroadcast Thursday, October 18, 2012.

Terry Tempest Williams’ mother told her, “I am leaving you all my journals, but you must promise me you won’t look at them until after I’m gone.”

“They were exactly where she said they would be: three shelves of beautiful cloth-bound books . . . I opened the first journal. It was empty. I opened the second journal. It was empty. I opened the third. It too was empty . . . Shelf after shelf after shelf, all of my mother’s journals were blank.”

In her new book, When Women Were Birds, acclaimed Utah writer Terry Tempest Williams considers the mystery of her mother's journals and the questions “What does it mean to have a voice?”  Tom Williams will ask that question and many others on Tuesday's hour-long interview with Williams on Access Utah.
