Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
On January 22, 2018, author Ursula K. LeGuin passed away at the age of 88. Here we feature a 2017 interview with her about her book Words Are My Matter. LeGuin speaks with David Naimon on Between the Covers.

Hard times are coming, when well be wanting the voices of writers who can see alternatives to how we live now, can see through our fear-stricken society and its obsessive technologies to other ways of being, and even imagine real grounds for hope. Well need writers who can remember freedom " poets, visionaries " realists of a larger reality. . . . Words Are My Matter collects talks, essays, introductions to beloved books, and book reviews by Ursula K. Le Guin, one of our foremost public literary intellectuals. Words Are My Matter is essential reading. It is a manual for investigating the depth and breadth of contemporary fiction " and, through the lens of deep considerations of contemporary writing, a way of exploring the world we are all living in. We need writers who know the difference between production of a market commodity and the practice of an art. Developing written material to suit sales strategies in order to maximise corporate profit and advertising revenue is not the same thing as responsible book publishing or authorship.

(In addition to discussing the latest nonfiction by LeGuin, the new memoir by Pard, Ursula's cat, is also delved into)
