Journalist extraordinaire Dan Morain joined John Howard and Tim Foster to talk about his new book, Kamala’s Way: An American Life – the first biography of Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris. Morain covered Harris’ rise in real time for the Los Angeles Times, The Sacramento Bee and CalMatters; that background allowed him to write and research the entire book in a few months during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Dan offers insights into the woman who will be the first woman Vice President, and also shares stories of the background players; fascinating characters of San Francisco politics, including Harris’ former paramour Mayor Willie Brown and Kimberly Guilfoyle, one-time wife of Gavin Newsom and the current partner of Donald Trump Jr.

And, he shares details about the Sacramento Press Club’s new awards program celebrating California’s best journalism.
