For the past 50 years, Ursula K. Le Guin’s science fiction and fantasy books offered hope and inspiration to readers and writers everywhere. Join Literary Arts and the Le Guin family as we celebrate the life of Ursula during this public tribute. Featured speakers, including writers and friends, will offer reflections and tributes honoring Ursula’s influence and legacy.

As a genre-defying writer, Ursula authored more than 50 works, including novels, poetry collections, and children’s books that explore issues of race, gender, and environmentalism. Her books have been translated into more than 40 languages and have sold millions of copies worldwide. Her many honors include the Hugo, Nebula, National Book Award, and PEN-Malamud. In 2014, she was awarded the National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters.

While her speculative fiction urged readers to explore new worlds and distant futures, Ursula was an active guardian of her writing community and her home state of Oregon. She was an ardent supporter for writers and independent publishers and actively used her platform to defend free speech. Ursula was involved with Literary Arts for 31 years, as a participant, trusted advisor, and ardent supporter. Her dedication helped shape our programs that serve more than 20,000 readers and writers each year.
