In Memory of Ursula K. Le Guin
Ursula K. Le Guin, acclaimed for her radical science fiction writing, died on January 22, 2018.
Ursula K. Le Guin will be deeply missed. Her powerful storytelling rocked my world when I first cracked open the pages of her fantasy series Tales of Earthsea when at 16 years old. Her writing is centered on dreaming alternative realities, tough feminist sensibility, and our magic.
I find myself grieving her death with BIG grief, also, without words. However, I am not alone in my grief. Other incredible poets and bloggers are memorializing her incredible lifetime here, here, here, and here.
Thank you, Ursula le Guin. You've made me a better human and stronger accomplice for liberation. I'm going to curl up with those books right now...
