Come to the newly renovated Ojai Library on Tuesday, November 19 from 6 to 8pm to hear former U.S. Treasury Secretary W. Michael Blumenthal discuss his book From Exile to Washington.
Mr. Blumenthal was the 64th United States Secretary of the Treasury in the Carter administration, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Bendix, and later Burroughs/Unisys. Currently he is the President and Chief Executive of the Berlin Jewish Museum (the largest Jewish museum in Europe).
In a riveting memoir that spans the course of seven decades, Mr. Blumenthal documents his extraordinary life. As an observer and participant of some of the century’s milestone events, he tells the story of those influential political affairs that played a part in shaping the 20th century through the lens of both history and his own remarkable experience.
Ventura County Library joins the Library of Congress, the National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, the Smithsonian Institution and many other national institutions in paying tribute to the rich ancestry and traditions of Native Americans.
See the Library of Congress' Native American Heritage Month website for events, audio & video clips, travel itineraries, images, and much more.
