Living Room Revolution: Conversation, Community, and the Common Good

Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 11:00am - 12:15pm

Join us for a conversation with Cecile Andrews about her new book, Living Room Revolution: A Handbook for Conversation, Community, and the Common Good.

Our survival depends on our coming together to talk, reflect, and act as equals, creating a caring, joyful community through the ancient art of conversation — a way that brings dignity and respect to all. The heart of happiness and social change is joining with others in good talk and laughter, and in Living Room Revolution, Cecile Andrews explores how we can bring people together to create community for the common good. Each person can make a difference, and it can all start in your own living room.

 Cecile lives in Seattle and Santa Cruz and is a member of the Walnut Commons Cohousing in Santa Cruz. She is active in Transition in Santa Cruz and Palo Alto as well as Seattle. She has her doctorate in education from Stanford and has three other books dealing with the Simplicity movement: Circle of Simplicity, Slow is Beautiful, and Less is More (co-edited with Wanda Urbanska).
