Last Friday night I was deeply honored to spend time with my dear friend and fellow YGL, Van Jones, founder of Rebuild the Dream and co-host for CNN's Crossfire at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco. We came together around a discussion for my new bestselling book, "How The Poor Can Save Capitalism," and I must say that it was one of the most interesting and energizing discussions on the book yet. From a substance perspective, it was absolutely the most compelling discussion event -- and that credit goes to Van Jones.
The event was packed and all books sold out at the Commonwealth Club, and I ended up signing little stripes of paper! The questions from the audience were amazing.
A special thank you to the Commonwealth Club, to Van Jones, to my book publisher Berrett-Koehler Publishing, who were there in force, my local HOPE team and everyone else involved in this special meeting. And as well, a special thank you to my mother (Juanita Smith) and sister (Mara Hoskins) who showed up from out of town for this special evening.
A special thanks as well to Bank of the West, who served as a sponsor for the evening, along with Michael Bracco who represented the bank on the program, introducing Van and myself and the very special evening. I understand that both the radio (audio) version and the video will be available soon. Stand by!
Blessings. Let's go.
