Cecile Andrews Profiled in Today’s Sentinel

CecileAndrews2Wallace Baine wrote about one of our speakers, Cecile Andrews, in today’s Santa Cruz Sentinel.

“People move to Santa Cruz every day, but when someone like Cecile Andrews moves here, well, it’s a telling reflection of the city’s reputation,” he wrote, going on to describe how the former college administrator and author has moved here from Seattle.

Andrews’ latest book is Living Room Revolution, which Baine describes as “a distillation of her lifelong belief in the power of conversation in small groups as the seed bed for genuine and lasting community.” It’s those ideas that she will outline in “Can We Talk?” at TEDxSantaCruz.

She will join two-dozen other presenters Friday on the stage of the Rio Theatre.
