Author, When I Stop Talking, You’ll Know I’m Dead: Useful Stories from a Persuasive Man
In conversation with Mary Bitterman, Chair, The Commonwealth Club’s Board of Governors; President, The Bernard Osher Foundation

The producer of films from Oh God, The Karate Kid and Nashville to the recent Oceans Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen discusses his friendships with George Clooney, George H.W. Bush, Frank Sinatra, Elvis and other famed politicians, stars and confidants. Weintraub is a self-made, Brooklyn-born, Bronx-raised impresario, Hollywood producer and legendary deal maker. Don’t miss this opportunity to go beyond the glitz and glamour to get the real dirt on what goes on inside Hollywood, and Weintraub’s role at the heart of it all. There will be an introduction by Bernard Osher, longtime friend and founder of The Bernard Osher Foundation.
