“What it Means to Love America”: Dan Rather on What Unites Us: The Graphic Novel

at Online (6pm)
Limited copies of What Unites Us: The Graphic Novel with signed bookplate available with your ticket purchase!
Information and "the news" have become contested territories, with more people than ever, especially the young, feeling that they just can't trust what they read, hear and watch. That's a dangerous situation in the current moment of cultural and political reckoning when Americans need to work together. Times like these are when we're especially grateful for broadcast journalist Dan Rather.

Dan Rather is the voice America trusts (as well as one of the most surprising Twitter stars of the Trump era). He has been our measured guide and witness to the most significant events of the past four decades, from the assassination of JFK to the civil rights movement to the Vietnam War. Having covered every President since Eisenhower, for the past four years he's been a touchstone of decency and common sense during the most consequential time in recent political history. Now, as our sorely tested democracy paves a new path forward, Rather offers a stunning vision for true patriotism, a "tonic for disaffected millennials and conservative grandpas alike" (People). With a brand-new graphic novel edition of the New York Times bestseller What Unites Us, his "almost unbearably poignant" (BookPage) essay collection on what it means to be an American, he reaches beyond generational and ideological divides, giving us hope and courage.

In this live, virtual conversation between Dan and Priya Clemens, host of KQED Newsroom, you'll have the chance to ask one of our most revered living legends your questions about this extraordinary moment we find ourselves in, and where we go from here. At the dawn of a new administration, as hope begins to creep back in, there's no better time--and no better person--to guide us.
