Speaking Event

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."

Women's Literary Festival

If you were able to make it to Santa Barbara this week, you may want to stay through the weekend. The city is hosting the Women's Literary Festival at Fess Parker's DoubleTree Resort. Check out the list of amazing writers who will be speaking . The event will be focusing on diversity, literacy, and social justice, and Rebecca will be reading from Baby Love for the first time, exciting in the midst of so many brilliant women! Here's a recent interview Rebecca did with the Santa Barbara Independent article. Come hang out and soak up the writerly vibes! It's sure to be an inspiring day.
