Zócalo’s lecture series continues tonight with “Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Party of One” with Sacramento Bee columnist Daniel Weintraub. He’ll make the case that “Schwarzenegger's first four years as governor also represent an opportunity lost. The governor has squandered much of the advantage he once enjoyed with missteps, bad decisions, and poor execution.”
7:30 pm // Los Angeles Central Library, Mark Taper Auditorium // 630 W. 5th Street, Los Angeles // Free, but reservations recommended.
