Donations in Memory of Ursula K. Le Guin

Fri 26 Jan 2018 - Filed under: Not a Journal., | 1 Comment | Posted by: Gavin

Ursula K. Le Guin loved this world — among others! — and rather than flowers, we are making a donation in her name to the non-profit closest to her heart, the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

We also decided that for each print copy of her books sold through our website in the first three months of this year we will donate:

—  $10 from each print copy of Ursula K. Le Guin’s Words Are My Matter

—  $5 from each print copy of her translation of Angélica Gorodischer’s Kalpa Imperial

We will send the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge a check in April and will include any reader’s name who bought books and would like to be listed.

Direct donations in Ursula’s name can also be made here: Malheur Field Station or here: Audubon Society of Portland (specify that the donation is for Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and Harney County).

Further reading: I took heart from this Metafilter thread and some of the tributes gathered here.
