New Biography Examines How Pat And Jerry Brown Helped Shape California

Acclaimed biographer Miriam Pawel’s newest work tells the story of the most influential family in California political history. In The Browns of California: The Family Dynasty that Transformed a State and Helped Shape a Nation, she traces the rise of Governor Pat Brown and his son Governor Jerry Brown, and examines how they both shaped the state in their own unique and unconventional ways. It’s a story that stretches from the Gold Rush to the present day, and gives us new insights into two men and to the California they helped create. She joined us on Valley Edition to talk about the book, their relationship as father-and-son, and about Jerry Brown’s notion of legacy.
