News & Events
Bob Woodward, legendary Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author, will be the featured speaker at the President's Distinguished Speaker Series on Monday, Dec. 3, at 7 p.m. in the Rondileau Campus Center Auditorium. Since 1971, Woodward has worked for The Washington Post, where he is an associate editor. He and Carl Bernstein were the main reporters on the Watergate scandal for which The Post won the Pulitzer Prize in 1973. His participation in Bridgewater State University's Distinguished Speaker Series marks the 40th anniversary of Watergate. Woodward was the lead reporter for The Post's articles on the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the United States that won the National Affairs Pulitzer Prize in 2002. Woodward has authored and co-authored 17 books, all of which have been national non-fiction best sellers, including All the President's Men in 1974. His most recent book, The Price of Politics (published in September), based on 18 months of reporting, is an intimate, documented examination of how President Obama and the highest profile Republican and Democratic leaders in Congress attempted to restore the American economy and improve the federal government's fiscal condition. Woodward graduated from Yale University in 1965 and served five years as a communications officer in the U.S. Navy before beginning his journalism career at the Montgomery County (Maryland) Sentinel, where he was a reporter for a year before joining The Washington Post. Admission to the event is free, but reservations are required and are on a first-come basis. To reserve your seat, send an email to RSVPPresEvents@bridgew.edu or call 508.531.6123. Woodward will sign copies of his new book following his talk.
