Award-winning journalist and author Bob Woodward is giving a talk on presidential leadership and the price of politics at West Chester University on Friday, Nov.1, at 8 p.m. in Asplundh Concert Hall on S. High St.
Woodward's appearance on the West Chester campus is the first in the University's presidential speaker series, which will include a talk in the spring by ABC News political commentator Cokie Roberts.
Since 1971, Bob Woodward has worked for The Washington Post where he is currently 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. 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.
Woodward has authored or co-authored 17 books, all of which have been national non-fiction best sellers. His most recent book, The Price of Politics (September 2012), is based on 18 months of reporting and is an intimate, documented examination of how President Obama and the highest profile Republican and Democratic leaders in the U.S. Congress attempted to restore the American economy and improve the federal government's fiscal condition.
