The Winning Family: Where No One
Kristen (Baumgardner) Caven, this year’s CWC Writer in Residence at Joaquin Miller Park, educates, entertains, and inspires her audiences with an extraordinary offering of books, presentations, performances, and events. The author of seven books, several plays, and an award winning cartoon collection, she applies positive psychology to her work strengthening communities through uplifting artistic expressions.
In spite of the uplifting statements of Northeastern University in Oakland about gender and racial equality, they need to be accountable for their actions in destroying a women’s college with a legacy of serving minorities. Watch The Unmaking of Mills College community Zoom meeting I hosted here. Read the lies here. Listen to Mills Voices here. Get involved with Save Mills, Investigate Mills, All4Mills. Here’s a radio interview I did (with Covid!)
Join me for more conversations around Mills, women’s colleges, women’s education, women’s rights on Clubhouse!
Walkin’ with Joaquin
Join me on the third Wednesday of every month in Joaquin Miller Park for Write in the Hights, a writing retreat in the Oakland Hills with the California Writers Club. I’m working on a book about Joaquin Miller and blogging about the history and happenings in this local happy place.
I’m working on the 4th edition of The Winning Family with my mom, the famous Dr. Louise Hart. The last time we approached a publisher to bring it back into print, we ended up writing The Bullying Antidote! The message is the same: raising children with positive parenting (we invented that term) is the best prevention for all types of social harm.
