Ursula LeGuin at the NBAs

Our beloved Ursula LeGuin was the highlight of the National Book Awards as she gave a speech in acceptance of her award for Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. Neil Gaimin bestowed her medal upon her, and then she gave what the New Yorker article describes as “the definitive remarks of the ceremony”.

A portion of Ursula’s speech is excerpted in the article and you can watch a video of her remarks here.
