On Thursday, April 8th at 4:00pm PDT Warwick's will host Brooke Baldwin as she discusses her new book, Huddle: How Women Unlock Their Collective Power, in conversation with Cindi Leive. Brooke Baldwin is a veteran journalist and Peabody Award finalist who has anchored the 2-4 p.m. (ET) edition of CNN Newsroom for more than a decade. She has often been sent into the field to cover the biggest breaking stories in the US and around the world. She played a major role in anchoring coverage of the Obama and Trump administrations and has also reported on stories from Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. She joined CNN in 2008, and viewers have come to know Baldwin for her versatility, authenticity, and humanity at the news desk. As the creator and host of CNN's digital series American Woman, she has dedicated the latest chapter of her career to shining a light on trailblazing women in politics and culture. Baldwin graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2001 with a BA in journalism and Spanish. She lives in Manhattan with her husband, James, and their pug, Pugsley. Huddle is her first book.

CNN news anchor Brooke Baldwin explores the phenomenon of what she calls the "huddle," when women get together - in politics, Hollywood, activism, the arts, sports, and everyday friendships - to provide each other support, empowerment, inspiration, and the strength to solve problems or enact meaningful change. Whether they are facing adversity (like workplace inequity or a global pandemic) or organizing to make the world a better place, women are a highly potent resource for one another. Through a mix of journalism and personal narrative, Baldwin takes readers beyond the big headline-making huddles from the last few years (such as the Women's March, #MeToo, Times Up, and the pink wave in the 2018 midterm elections) and embeds herself in groups of women of all ages, races, religions and socio-economic backgrounds who are banding together in America.

Throughout her examination of this fascinating huddle phenomenon, Baldwin learns about the periods of huddle 'droughts" in America, as well as the ways that Black women have been huddling for centuries. She also uncovers how huddling can be the "secret sauce" that makes many things possible for women: success in the workplace, effective grassroots change, confidence in girlhood, and a better physical and mental health profile in adulthood. Along the way, Baldwin takes readers through her own personal journey of growing up in the South and climbing the ladder of a male-dominated industry. Like so many women in her field, she encountered many sharp elbows on her career path, but became an early believer in adding more seats to the table and huddling with other women for strength and solidarity. In the process of writing Huddle, Baldwin learns that this seemingly new phenomenon is actually something women have been doing for generations - a quiet, collective power she learns to unlock in her transformation from journalist to champion for women.

Cindi Leive is a journalist, media leader and co-founder of The Meteor, a feminist media collective that launches in 2021. A cultural critic who appears frequently on TV and live events, she is a senior fellow at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg Center; the former editor-in-chief of both Glamour and Self magazines; the force behind barrier-breaking initiatives like Glamour Women of the Year and The Girl Project; and the author or producer of numerous books including the 2018 New York Times bestseller Together We Rise, about the making of the Women’s March. Cindi has interviewed heads of state, Hollywood and fashion’s biggest personalities, and iconic leaders from all walks of life. Her many awards and honors include recognition from the White House and the United Nations, as well as an Emmy and multiple National Magazine Awards.
