Reading California Book Discussion: The Browns of California
This book is subtitled The Family Dynasty That Transformed a State and Shaped a Nation, and author Miriam Pawel will join us to tell how and why she chose this fascinating and sometimes unpredictable clan to write about. From old-school politician Edmund G. "Pat" Brown to ever-changing Jerry Brown to youngest daughter Kathleen Brown, Pawel takes through their lives and their influence on our lives. Pawel's book won the Californiana award at this year's California Book Awards and has earned rave reviews from the San Francisco Chronicle, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
