In these difficult and divisive times, Toobin and Klein will talk pre-election journalism, truth, Supreme court and the elections. Toobin is a staff writer at the New Yorker and the senior legal analyst at CNN. He is also the bestselling author of “The Oath,” “The Nine,” “Too Close to Call,” “A Vast Conspiracy,” and “The Run of His Life,” which was made into the critically acclaimed, Golden Globe winning, FX series “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.”  “True Crimes and Misdemeanors” was an instant New York Times bestseller.
