Living New Deal founder, Gray Brechin, will give a talk on April 11 at the Rotary Club in San Rafael, CA. The talk is titled, “The New Deal Lives on in Marin and Sonoma Counties.”
The Living New Deal is a nationwide team effort dedicated to uncovering the forgotten legacy of New Deal public works and interpreting their lost ethical language for a time that needs it. Founder and Project Scholar Dr. Gray Brechin will show what the project has so far discovered in the two counties north of San Francisco where New Deal matrix is ubiquitous but largely unseen.
After a career of environmental and urban design journalism, Gray Brechin received his Ph.D. in Geography from UC Berkeley. His dissertation was published by UC Press in 1999 as Imperial San Francisco: Urban Power, Earthly Ruin and spent sixteen weeks on the Chronicle’s best-seller list. Almost 25 years later, he is converting it into an audiobook.
