Event description

Description


Bill Fulton, Director of the Kinder Institute for Urban Research, will discuss and sign his book Talk City: A Chronicle of Political Life in An All-American Town, which chronicles Fulton's time as mayor of Ventura, California.

About The Book

Talk City is a collection of the remarkable insights the distinguished urban planner Bill Fulton wrote while serving in the administration of the California beach town of Ventura. What started out as a weekly update to explain to constituents all that happened at the city council meetings soon grew into an evocative, real-time chronicle of what it was like to serve as an underpaid, overstressed, part-time local elected official during hard times. If you like local government and politics, you'll love how Talk City reveals the stresses and strains of serving as an elected official in a typical American city.
