Renowned Washington Post journalist and best-selling author Bob Woodward will lecture at Tulane on March 21, Tulane University Campus Programming’s Direction committee announced today (March 2).
The lecture and Q&A session will be held in McAlister Auditorium on the Tulane uptown campus. Free of charge and open to the public, it will begin at 8 p.m., and doors will open at 7:15 p.m.
Woodward, regarded as one of America’s preeminent investigative reporters and non-fiction authors, has worked for The Washington Post since 1971 as a reporter. In 1972, when Woodward was teamed up with Carl Bernstein, they did much of the original news reporting on the Watergate scandal that led to numerous government investigations and the eventual resignation of President Richard Nixon.
The Weekly Standard has called Woodward “the best pure reporter of his generation, perhaps ever.” He also authored or co-authored 12 No. 1 national best-selling non-fiction books, including All the President’s Men (1974), Bush at War (2002) and Obama’s Wars (2010).
