The Alameda Public Affairs Forum, is very pleased to present columnist and author, Robert Scheer, on Saturday, January 20th, 7 to 9 p.m., at the Home of Truth Center, 1300 Grand Street, Alameda. Mr. Scheer will be discussing his new book, “Playing President: My Close Encounters with Nixon, Carter, Bush I, Reagan and Clinton—and How They Did Not Prepare Me for George W. Bush”. His decisive and dynamic perspective provides an unparalleled insight into the presidential mind. “If anyone has more succinctly stated, and summarized the folly we call presidential campaigns,” writes John Dean, “I am not aware of it.”

Robert Scheer has covered presidential politics for the Los Angeles Times for thirty years, and now as a syndicated columnist, including for the San Francisco Chronicle. He is the author of six books, including “With Enough Shovels: Reagan, Bush and Nuclear War” and “America after Nixon: The Age of the Multinationals”. He is co-author of “The Five Biggest Lies Bush Told Us About Iraq”. He is a clinical professor of communications at the Annenberg School at the University of Southern California, and editor of Truthdig.com, a contributing editor of The Nation, and cohost of NPR-affiliate KCRW’s Left, Right and Center

Mr. Scheer will speak at the Forum for an hour and then have questions and discussions with the audience. The event is free, donations are welcome. Copies of the book will be available for sale after the talk.
