Miriam Pawel - The Browns of California: The Family Dynasty That Transformed a State and Shaped a Nation

Upcoming Event
Sunday, September 23, 2018 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

For almost half of California’s modern history, the state has been governed by either Pat Brown or his son, the current governor, Jerry Brown—who will end his fourth term in 2018 having served as both the youngest and oldest California governor. In many ways, the story of the Brown family is also the story of California, and in this wide-ranging chronicle, Pawel tells both. A Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and the author of The Crusades of Cesar Chavez and The Union of Their Dreams, Pawel looks at the Golden State’s history from the Gold Rush to Silicon Valley, profiles four generations of Browns, traces the family’s rise, and considers the dynasty’s impact on both California and the nation. Pawel will be in conversation with Bill Press, former California Democratic Party chair and author of From the Left and Trump Must Go.
