The "Give One, Get One" Book Exchange hosted by IABCLA on September 21 at Urth Caffee in Pasadena fostered a lively conversation about communications ideas across various media. The titles that were exchanged covered political comms and community building, why some ideas thrive, how to podcast, and a classic book for writers.
The group shared many recommendations, including books, articles, websites, and podcasts. Here are a few to consider:
- Freakonomics podcast on making meetings less terrible
- Thrive Global – a website on well-being and success
- What Successful People do in Social Media by Carolyn Leach (IABCLA member)
- How to Write Short by Roy Peter Clark
- Book Bub – a daily email offer of fiction, nonfiction, and classic e-books – priced at $1.99 or $2.99. Subscribe here.
The chapter’s next event will be a Coffee Connection on October 12 at Andante, 7623 Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles. Hosted by Rachel Mann, the discussion will focus on executive communications.
