Alan B. Larkin Symposium on the American Presidency
The 2014 Alan B. Larkin Symposium on the American Presidency will host Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein with "Inside the White House: From Nixon to Obama," on Wednesday, February 19 at 3:30pm. The event will take place in the Carole and Barry Kaye Auditorium on Florida Atlantic University's Boca Raton campus. Tickets are $35 and will be available August 30, 2013.
As investigative reporters for The Washington Post, Woodward and Bernstein filed news articles about the Watergate break in and cover up that eventually resulted in the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon.
Carl Bernstein attended the University of Maryland and is currently employed as a writer for Vanity Fair magazine. After he quit working for The Washington Post in 1976, he was a senior correspondent and Washington Bureau Chief for ABC News, taught classes at New York University, and contributed articles to Time Magazine. With Bob Woodward, he wrote All the President's Men, The Final Days, and contributed to the Secret Man about their Deep Throat source. He is also the co-author of His Holiness: John Paul II & the History of Our Time, and A Woman in Charge: The Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Yale alumnus Bob Woodward is still working for The Washington Post, now as an associate editor, and to this day has a listed phone number that is available to any potential news source. He has been described by CBS News reporter Bob Schieffer as "the best reporter of our time...may be the best reporter of all time." His former boss, Editor Ben Bradlee, described him as "surely the best of his generation at investigative reporting, the best I've ever seen." Woodward has authored 16 non-fiction books, and all have been national bestsellers. In fact, he has written more #1 national non-fiction bestsellers than any other contemporary author. Although many of these books were met with criticism and even denials, after investigations were completed, his work has always proven to be accurate. He was a major contributor to a second Pulitzer Prize for The Washington Post with his coverage of the September 11, 2011 attacks.
