Books For Breakfast Summer 2022

AWC-SB presents Books for Breakfast, an informal summer discussion group of books that will help us become Better Communicators. Two events are taking place on July 14 and August 11 in downtown Santa Barbara. Meetings are open to AWC-SB members & non-members. No-host, you buy your own beverage/breakfast. No need to RSVP, just show up.

Weds. April 7: Truth Decay -The Battle to Prevent Lies and Misinformation from Overwhelming Reality

Whether it’s Russian trolls planting fake narratives, conspiracy theorists colluding against a perceived enemy or well-meaning citizens sharing misleading memes, the current deluge of information has made it all too easy to disseminate fiction and falsehoods that can topple businesses, spread pandemics and even undermine democracy.  Join veteran journalist, educator and truth-talker Starshine Roshell for a look at how we got here, why it matters and the small-but-powerful things you can do to help.

Wed August 5: Books For Breakfast

“Words matter.” That tagline could be a mantra for AWC-SB members. It also appears on Nonviolent Communication, the August selection for AWCSB’s popular Books for Breakfast event. This classic book by Marshall Rosenberg promises to help readers “find common ground with anyone, anywhere, at any time, both personally and professionally.”  Nothing could be more timely—or more relevant to professional communicators!
