About the Program

Join Writers Bloc Presents® and the Skirball Cultural Center for an evening of conversation with Pulitzer Prize–winning White House correspondent Maggie Haberman as she discusses her revelatory and news-making release, Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America.

Few journalists working today have covered Trump more extensively than Haberman. And few understand him and his motivations better. Now, demonstrating her majestic command of this story, Haberman reveals the depth of her exceptional understanding of America’s forty-fifth president and what the Trump phenomenon means for American democracy.

Veteran journalist, author, and USC journalism professor Todd Purdum moderates. A Q&A follows the conversation.
