Cal Performances would like to welcome faculty and staff back to campus with a special offer to kick off its 2019–20 Speaker Series. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, New York Times White House correspondent, and CNN political analyst Maggie Haberman will speak in Zellerbach Hall this Sunday, October 6 at 7pm. Tickets to this event are only $10 for members of our campus community.*
Maggie Haberman has covered Donald Trump for much of her decorated career as a political reporter—from his decades in the New York City tabloid headlines to his current contentious presidency. Here in Berkeley, she will share her observations about the Trump administration’s combative relationship with the press, the changing perceptions of journalism throughout the country, and her award-winning investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential campaign, offering a bird’s-eye view of our divided political landscape and outlining where opportunities exist for compromise and cooperation across the aisle.
*Discounted $10 tickets for Maggie Haberman are now available to UC Berkeley faculty and staff, limit of two (2) tickets per order. Tickets can be ordered:
