“… A compelling history of our city’s last half century, as conveyed through the life of one of our most impactful leaders…”
—Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass
After the Garden Party, take a month to recuperate, then join us for an afternoon with one of L.A. County's most storied political figures, former County Supervisor and City Councilmember Zev Yaroslavsky, as he shares stories from his new memoir
ABOUT THE BOOK
This is the story of Zev Yaroslavsky, the son of Ukrainian Jews who immigrated to the United States in the early 1920s. His memoir charts the journey of a young social activist who battled to free Soviet Jews before becoming one of the most consequential elected officials in Southern California.
Fiercely independent, he combined an activist's passion with a seasoned politician's skill to challenge the region's power brokers. He fought the Los Angeles Police Department's excessive force and political spying policies, led the effort to ban local taxes from funding the 1984 Olympics, teamed with President Clinton to avert a catastrophic county bankruptcy, helped develop L.A.'s modern transit system, won a bruising battle with real estate interests to save the Santa Monica Mountains from rapacious development, and was pivotal in the development of Walt Disney Concert Hall and the modernization of the iconic Hollywood Bowl.
"I may be part of the establishment," he said on the day he was first sworn into office, "but the establishment is not part of me."
