Sonoma Speaker Series, In Conversation with Bill Keller
Monday, February 26, 2018
Bill Keller has been an important, central figure in American journalism for decades. His most significant roles came with his work at the New York Times where he wore many hats: Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and bureau chief in Moscow during the collapse of the Soviet Union, bureau chief in South Africa during the collapse of apartheid, foreign editor, op-ed writer, and then executive editor from 2003-2011.

Thought you did a great job with the Speakers Series. We really enjoyed the discussion, and the format was terrific. Congrats!
Great evening last night! Loved it. Great job!!! Can’t wait for the next one!
I just wanted to tell you how much John and I enjoyed last night’s first of many speakers. Given the general tenor of this election, it was refreshing to be able to laugh a bit, and hear their respective take on the election. The series is a welcome addition to Sonoma — and I am grateful not to have to drive to Marin!!!
Was a wonderful event….kudos to all!

Ginny and I wanted you to know how much we enjoyed hearing Randy Thom. I wasn’t quite sure how interesting the subject was going to be, but he made it fascinating. Very nicely done.
Thanks very much for the invitation to the Randy Thom event. It was really great.
Wow! We could not make the first talk, but we really enjoyed last night. Very well done! Thanks for adding another dimension to Sonoma.
What a compelling speaker! I have felt such a need for this kind of thing in Napa/Sonoma, so THANK YOU for starting such an inspiring lecture series. I know the community appreciates it, too!
That was an A+ event. I liked every minute of it, and really enjoyed the speaker. Good show indeed!
