Terry Tempest Williams on the search for beauty
Midmorning rebroadcasts a conversation with Author Terry Tempest Williams. In her new book, Terry Tempest Williams writes of the old mosaics in Ravenna, Italy.
The exquisite art made from tiles is just one of the man-made and natural wonders that inspires a meditation on the power of beauty. She wrote the book after reflecting on how bitter her writing and speaking became after Bush administration's reaction to Sept. 11.
