About this Event

Andrea Bernstein

In conversation with Kristen Muller,

KPCC's Chief Content Officer

ALOUD on WORDS @ Central Library

Andrea Bernstein, the award-winning journalist and host of the WNYC/ProPublica podcast Trump, Inc., offers a sweeping new exposé into the multigenerational saga of two emblematic American families. American Oligarchs: The Kushners, the Trumps, and the Marriage of Money and Power follows how these families rose from immigrant roots to the pinnacle of U.S. power. Through extensive reporting, Bernstein traces their journey to the White House—from growing rich on federal programs that bolstered the middle class to sheltering their wealth from tax collectors. Discussing this convoluted story of survival and loss, crime and betrayal, Bernstein will be joined by Kristen Muller, Chief Content Officer who oversees KPCC's station programming podcasting, and its local journalism.
