Olympia resident Dee Williams, who hand-crafted her 84-square-foot house and wrote a book about the experience, “The Big Tiny: A Built-It-Myself-Memoir,” will speak at the Olympia Timberland Library at 7:30 p.m. July 31.

“I found a certain bigness in my little house – a sense of largeness, freedom, and happiness that comes when you see there’s no place else you’d rather be,” she wrote on her website.

Williams founded Portland Alternative Dwellings (PAD) to help others find a way to make their housing serve their lives. She has been featured in The Olympian, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Yahoo.com, National Public Radio, CBS This Morning and more.

Attendees may bring their own copies of the book to be signed. Books will also be available for purchase. Learn more about Dee and the tiny house movement at www.padtinyhouses.com.

The library is at 313 Eighth Ave. SE. This program will take place after regular library hours and no other services will be available. For more information, contact the library at (360) 352-0595 or visit www.TRL.org
