TEDxSanAntonio speakers are chosen because of the unique perspectives they bring to the world and to the San Antonio community. These perspectives are shared not only in the brief talks they offer to our main event audiences, but also in the books, films, music, and other artworks that have influenced them throughout their creative and professional lives.
As part of our selection and coaching process, we ask speakers to provide a short list of books that have contributed to their thinking and helped to formulate their viewpoints. Take a look at the examples we’ve posted with each speaker’s video and you’ll find classic novels and compelling works of nonfiction, a range of reading as broad and challenging as the topics on which they speak.
On each speaker’s page, beneath their video, you can see links that will take you to Amazon.com to purchase a copy of their recommended books. Your purchases help support TEDxSanAntonio’s future events.
TEDx is all about challenging your beliefs and changing the way you look at the world. We think our speakers’ reading choices go a long way toward helping us achieve that outcome. Have a look and judge for yourself!
