Words That Burn brings to life the distinctive voices of conscientious objector William Stafford, Japanese-American internee Lawson Inada, and Chicano Marine Guy Gabaldón. This dramatic work juxtaposes the history and perspectives of three World War II figures through a blend of poetry and  written in their own words. 

Words That Burn by Cindy Williams Gutiérrez is the 2017 winner of the Oregon Book Award in drama. The play is 70 minutes and will be followed by a 20-minute audience discussion with the director and author.

This event is part of the Oregon Book Awards Author Tour. This program is supported by the Oregon Cultural Trust.
