Writers on the Edge Features Ceiridwen Terrill
Writer and adventurer Ceiridwen Terrill will be the featured speaker at Writers on the Edge on Saturday, September 15 at 7 pm in the Visual Arts Center at Nye Beach. Terrill says of her work, “I explore my own human foibles through memoir and science as I figure out how to live on the urban-wild border.”
Terrill is the author of numerous articles, and her books include Part Wild, the story of her journey with a wolfdog (part husky, part gray wolf) named Inyo, her protector and fellow traveler.
In Unnatural Landscapes: Tracking Invasive Species, Terrill shares her journey through various “islands” in the Southwest and Mexico—both actual islands and self-contained habitat communities, offering readers an introduction to invasion ecology and restoration management. Traveling aboard her trusty kayak, The Grebe, Terrill brings readers an in-depth look at the damage that invasive species cause.
Terrill’s work includes field expeditions to Siberia. She teaches environmental journalism and science writing at Concordia University in Portland.
Lodging for Ceiridwen Terrill’s stay is provided courtesy of The Whaler. The program begins at 7pm, with an open mic for local writers following Eslami’s presentation. General admission is $6; students are admitted free. For more information, visit www.WritersOnTheEdge.org
