About the Program

Hear from James Poniewozik, chief television critic for the New York Times, on the rise of Donald J. Trump—a being made of pure “television”—to the nation’s highest office in part through his use of popular media.

In conversation with Los Angeles Times television critic Mary McNamara, Poniewozik will discuss his new cultural history, hailed as the “Mueller Report of television criticism” by critic Emily Nussbaum.

Arrive early to view the exhibitions! Through a Different Lens: Stanley Kubrick Photographs and El Sueño Americano / The American Dream: Photographs by Tom Kiefer will be open from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.

Books available for purchase. A book signing follows the program.
