Jerry Brown Biographer Chuck McFadden Headlines Channel City Club Luncheon

Chuck McFadden, Gov. Jerry Brown’s biographer, will speak at this month’s Channel City Club luncheon. The luncheon begins at noon July 23 at Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort in Santa Barbara.

McFadden’s new book, Trailblazer: A Biography of Jerry Brown (UC Press, May 2013), traces Brown’s childhood, his time studying for the priesthood, his romances, and his political career, from his first two terms as governor to his most recent.

Showy, idealistic and contradictory, California has never before seen a governor who was such a contrasting amalgam of religious questing, down-and-dirty politics, and consistent, fervent ambition.

Check-in for the Channel City Club luncheon begins at 11:30 a.m. July 23 and the luncheon starts at noon in the Santa Ynez Room at Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort, 633 E. Cabrillo Blvd. Advance reservations are required, and the cost is $35 for members and $40 for nonmembers.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
