A Conversation with Bob Woodward
American Investigative Journalist and Non-Fiction Author
Join legendary journalist Bob Woodward to learn about what’s going on in Washington – and the world – today. With a big election year on the horizon, the political landscape and how it will impact our businesses and personal lives has never been more important. The two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning associate editor of the Post offers insights that audiences won’t learn from any other source.
As a veteran reporter who for 46 years has immersed himself in American presidencies, their decision-making, scandals, wars, and economic policy, Woodward will provide a non-partisan behind-the-scenes examination of what’s really going on and what it means.
