Episode Summary

James McGreevey
Former New Jersey governor, James McGreevey, makes a highly anticipated appearance in San Francisco to discuss his new memoir, The Confession. The former governor discusses personal recollections of his political rise and fall, his spirituality, and his lifelong struggle to come to terms with the sexual identity he kept secret for years.McGreevey's new book traces his life through two failed marriages, his rapid political rise to the governor's office, and the sudden, public implosion of his political career. Governor McGreevey made history in August 2004 when he declared, "I am a gay American" on national television, and announced his resignation from office. The story made headlines worldwide - but what led to that moment was a human and political drama more complex and fascinating than anyone could know.Moderator for the evening is Dudley Clendinen, New York Times contributor and co-author, "Out for Good: The Struggle to Build a Gay Rights Movement in America." This event consists of a conversation between McGreevey and Clendinen, followed by Q&A from the audience. The event, part of the "TimesTalks" Speaker Series, is co-presented by The New York Times and The San Francisco Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Community Center.moreless
