President's Distinguished Speaker Series

Legendary Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalist/Author and Associate Editor of The Washington Post
Monday, December 3, 2012 7:00 PM
Rondileau Campus Center Auditorium at Bridgewater State University, 19 Park Avenue

Since 1971, Bob 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. Bridgewater State University is excited to announce Mr. Woodward's participation in the Distinguished Speaker Series, as this year marks the 40th anniversary of Watergate. Mr. Woodward was the lead reporter for The Post's articles on the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks that won the National Affairs Pulitzer Prize in 2002. In 2004, Bob Schieffer of CBS News said, "Woodward has established himself as the best reporter of our time. He may be the best reporter of all time." 

Mr. Woodward has authored or co-authored 17 books, all of which have been national non-fiction best sellers, including All The President's Men (1974). His most recent book, The Price of Politics (September 2012), based on 18 months of reporting, is an intimate, documented examination of how President Obama and the highest profile Republican and Democratic leaders in the United States Congress attempted to restore the American economy and improve the federal government's fiscal condition. 

Mr. Woodward was born March 26, 1943, in Illinois. He graduated from Yale University in 1965 and served five years as a communications officer in the United States Navy before beginning his journalism career at the Montgomery County (Maryland) Sentinel, where he was a reporter for one year before joining The Washington Post. 

Mr. Woodward will sign copies of his new book,The Price of Politics, following his talk.
