|Rebecca's comments on her recent UCSB visit:
"The talk was wonderful. It was great to see so many open, thinking people. And the UCSB campus is quite beautiful, right on the ocean, with many impressive older and contemporary buildings. Even though UCSB has 20,000 students, the scale of the campus is still quite intimate and human. Lots of people riding bikes, and lots of students, staff and faculty with happy looking children. I hope to see some of my new friends at the Literary Festival on Saturday. I have a feeling it will be amazing."
