Beer and Politics with Governor John Hickenlooper

In just over a decade, John Hickenlooper has gone from a craft-brew entrepreneur to mayor of Denver to governor of Colorado. In conversation with Jane Harman about his new book, The Opposite of Woe, the maverick—and very funny—statesman tells his story of determination and daring. From bouncing back after personal loss to launching a remarkably successful business to landing in state office, Hickenlooper’s story is that of a true trailblazer. (Book signing to follow.)
