Gov. Jerry Brown is in the final stretch of his final term as California’s top elected official. His career in office, which spans decades, has left an indelible mark on the state’s policy and role in the world. He’s from a dynasty with deep roots in the state, and Miriam Pawel’s new book, “The Browns Of California” traces their history and influence.

Pawel joins us in-studio to talk about our outgoing governor and his father, Pat, and to preview an event at the California State Library on the evening of Sept. 5.
