Recordings of Past Talks
As far back as 1995, we have recorded extraordinary voices that were — and continue to be — life-changing for many listeners. Some of the great writers and commentators of our time are included in our library of recordings.
During the conference, CDs of selected individual talks from the current year as well as past years are sold at the on-site bookstore in the SVWC tent.
