In “The Browns of California: The Family Dynasty that Transformed a State and Shaped a Nation,” journalist Miriam Pawel tells the story of this extraordinary family, which saw both Pat Brown and Jerry Brown as influential governors. She is joined by two Brown relatives, powerful political players in their own right: Kathleen Kelly, Brown’s niece and a San Francisco Superior Court Judge who has focused much of her career on juvenile justice, and Joseph Kelly, former city commissioner in San Francisco and campaign strategist. They’ll discuss the legacy and ongoing contributions of a family that has helped shape California for four generations.
