Producers Club

Producers Club members share the distinction of being KPBS' most generous annual contributors, giving $1,200 or more each year to strengthen the impact of public broadcasting. Producers Club members are the station’s most invested and engaged supporters, they are our ambassadors and counselors. They enable KPBS to expand its vision of excellence, develop new programs, and serve our communities. More importantly, they provide foundational support that enables our growth today and into the future.

KPBS Conrad Prebys Media Complex at Copley Center
Join us on Wed., Apr 24, 2024 at 6:00 PM at the KPBS Conrad Prebys Media Complex at Copley Center for an exciting evening with NPR National Political Correspondent Sarah McCammon. Sarah will be joining us to discuss her new book The Exvangelicals: Loving, Living, and Leaving the White Evangelical Church. The 2024 book is part memoir and part journalism in which Sarah places her own disillusionment and discovery in dialogue with the stories of other former evangelicals to examine this burgeoning movement and its social and political impact on the world. Sarah will give us a preview of her book followed by an insightful conversation with KPBS Midday Edition Host Jade Hindmon. You will also have a chance to ask Sarah a question during the audience Q&A. Don't miss this wonderful opportunity to meet one of NPR's award-winning journalists as well as network with fellow Producers Club members.
