PAUL LOEB TO SPEAK AT BETHEL WOODS
Keynote for Sullivan Renaissance 2007 Conference and Expo
December 11, 2006
[BETHEL] – What does it take to inspire citizens to act on the issues that concern them most? Seattle-based author and activist Paul Leob will explore this topic during his keynote address at the 11th Annual Sullivan Renaissance Conference and Expo on Saturday, February 3, 2007 at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel, New York.
“Soul to Solar” will feature exhibits and workshops on main street lighting, solar energy, green resources and student involvement. The conference and expo will bloom with spring flowers, inspiration, tools and resources that make a difference in the community. Details of the Sullivan Renaissance 2007 grant program will be announced and applications will be available.
An Affiliated Scholar at Seattle’s Center for Ethical Leadership, Loeb is the editor of “The Impossible Will Take A Little While: A Citizens Guide to Hope in a Time of Fear” and author of “Soul of a Citizen.” He has written for The New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times and he has done over 800 interviews including PBS, NPR, CNN, Fox, the BBC, CNBC, and the NBC Nightly News. Called “a national treasure” by Susan Sontag, Loeb will discuss the challenge of social commitment that Billie Holiday expressed so movingly in the lyric that inspired the book title: “The difficult I’ll do right now. The impossible will take a little while.”
The conference and expo will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please call to pre-register.
A list of workshops, recipients of the annual Sullivan First Achievement Awards, and other details will be announced later. Refreshments will be served by culinary students from the Delaware Valley Job Corps Center.
