ROBERT SCHEER

Presents his new book
PLAYING PRESIDENT
My Relationships with Nixon, Carter, Bush I, Reagan, and Clinton-and How They Did Not Prepare Me for George W. Bush

Robert Scheer has built a reputation for strong social and political writing over his thirty years as a journalist. His columns appear in newspapers across the country, and his in-depth interviews have made headlines. He conducted the famous Playboy magazine interview in which Jimmy Carter confessed to the lust in his heart and he went on to do many interviews for the Los Angeles Times with Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, and other prominent political and cultural figures.

In 1993 he launched a nationally syndicated column based at the Los Angeles Times, where he was named a contributing editor. That column ran weekly for the next twelve years and is now based at the San Francisco Chronicle. Scheer can be heard on the political radio program "Left, Right and Center" on KALW in San Francisco. He has written seven books, including Thinking Tuna Fish, Talking Death: Essays on the Pornography of Power, With Enough Shovels: Reagan, Bush and Nuclear War, and America After Nixon: The Age of Multinationals.

Copies of Playing President will be available for purchase and signing.

$12 - $20 suggested donation. Sponsored by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center.
