Writers Bloc and the Los Angeles World Affairs Council & Town Hall present former Governor Jerry Brown: a visionary of inexhaustible political ambition, a public servant like no other in California history, a man whose principles and moral code have driven him for over five decades in public life. Brilliant and sometimes unpredictable, with a steadfast drive to advance a thriving and equitable California, Jerry Brown is a leader whose policies have defined California as the international economic stronghold it has become, as well as a national example of what progressive politics can accomplish.  

In his new book, Man of Tomorrow: The Relentless Life of Jerry Brown, award-winning journalist and bestselling author Jim Newton explores the unconventional arc of Brown’s career: In addition to being the longest serving governor in California history, Brown was a three-time Presidential candidate, a two-term Mayor of Oakland, and the California Attorney General. Newton reveals the complex and often contradictory nature of Jerry Brown’s personality and politics– and how Brown’s leadership stood up to the Trump White House policies on climate change, immigration, and more.  

Jim Newton and Jerry Brown will discuss the arc of Brown’s career, his impact on national politics, and his take on the future.
