JAMESTOWN – A nationally acclaimed journalist whose work helped the Washington Post win two Pulitzer Prizes in both 1973 and 2003 will be in Jamestown on Sunday.
The Robert H. Jackson Center will welcome renowned journalist Bob Woodward to the Reg Lenna Center for the Arts to discuss: “Have We Forgotten the Lessons of Watergate?” on Sunday at 5 p.m.
“He’s an interesting voice. There’s still a lot of issues that we’re grappling with today in terms of presidential power, privacy, and access that he will likely touch on during his conversation,” explained Kristan McMahon, Jackson Center president, during a recent interview with WRFA.
Woodward is an associate editor of the Washington Post, where he has worked since 1971. He has shared in two Pulitzer Prizes, first in 1973 for the coverage of the Watergate scandal with Carl Bernstein, and second in 2003 as the lead reporter for coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
He has authored 19 books; the latest, “Fear: Trump in the White House” became an international bestseller.
Woodward’s appearance is made possible by the Fund for Downtown Programming, part of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) Fund, as well as the Alan Y. Cole Endowment Fund.
