“[An] illuminating new biography of the most powerful woman in American politics.” ―The New York Times Book Review

She’s the iconic leader who puts Donald Trump in his place, the woman with the toughness to take on a lawless president and defend American democracy. Ever since the Democrats took back the House in the 2018 midterm elections, Nancy Pelosi has led the opposition with strategic mastery and inimitable elan. It’s a remarkable comeback for the veteran politician who for years was demonized by the right and taken for granted by many in her own party. Join award-winning political journalist Molly Ball as she discusses her new biography Pelosi, a nuanced, page-turning portrait of the legendary California congresswoman and current Speaker of the House of Representatives. In conversation with Scott Shafer, senior editor for KQED's Politics and Government Desk. FREE, $5-10 suggested donation

Registration is required for Zoom access. Spots are limited.
Event will also be livecasted on Facebook Live.
