Revisiting an Interview with Ursula K. LeGuin

Jan 25, 2018

Ursula K. LeGuin

In 2012, author Ursula K. LeGuin spoke at the Downtown Eugene Public Library, in conjunction with the annual Big Read--an even in which the whole community is asked to read and discuss one book, and its issues. In this case, the book was Ray Bradbury's classic Farhenheit 451, with all of its issues regarding censorship, self-censorship and the power of reading. KLCC's Eric Alan spoke to Ursula K. LeGuin then about those issues, as well as the impact of the Internet on reading, and her own work. To honor her passing, we revisit that interview here.
