Bob Woodward, the legendary Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist, associate editor of The Washington Post, and author of FEAR: Trump in the White House, the explosive Number One best-seller will be making his exclusive, South Florida appearance on Monday, October 15, at 7 p.m. at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts, 2855 Coral Springs Drive.
Tickets on Sale this Friday (Sept. 21)
As with his 19 bestselling books – 13 of which have been No. One (including his most recent book, FEAR: Trump in the White House) – Woodward provides a behind-the-scenes examination of what’s really going on at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and what it means.
In Woodward’s speeches, the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning associate editor of the Post offers some well-reported answers to questions that audiences won’t learn from any other source. As he reported on previous presidents, for 46 years Woodward has immersed himself in their decision-making, scandals, wars, and economic policy like no other reporter. He leveraged a rich network of sources – applying his signature aggressive but fair and non-partisan reporting method for his book on President Trump, his administration, and its many controversies.
A new poll from Axios and Survey Monkey is not good news for the Trump team. Veuer’s Nick Cardona has that story.
The State of the American Presidency
Everywhere legendary journalist Bob Woodward goes, he says people ask to know what’s really going on in Washington.
1) The presidency: How is President Trump doing and surviving? How does Trump compare with the eight presidents – Nixon to Obama – that Woodward has reported on for The Washington Post and in his bestselling books?
2) The investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller: is it like Watergate or will it fade away like Reagan’s Iran-Contra scandal?
3) Conflict: What is the likelihood of a new war? What are the goals with North Korea, in the Middle East, with the Islamic state, and on terrorism? Will there likely be a major escalation in one of the current conflicts?
4) The economy: Is the American/global economy sound or are we headed for trouble? How is Trump’s America First agenda playing out with our allies and enemies around the globe?
In 2014, Robert Gates, former director of the CIA and secretary of defense, said of Woodward, “He has an extraordinary ability to get otherwise responsible adults to spill [their] guts to him.” That is Woodward’s true gift and audiences at his speeches leave transfixed by what they’ve learned.
Tickets start at $39.50 plus fees/taxes
About Bob Woodward
Former CIA director and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates wished he’d recruited Woodward into the CIA, “His ability to get people to talk about stuff they shouldn’t be talking about is just extraordinary and may be unique.”
Therein lies the genius of Bob Woodward – a journalistic icon who gained international attention when he and Carl Bernstein broke the deeply disturbing news of the Watergate scandal. The book they wrote – All the President’s Men – won a Pulitzer Prize.
Watergate’s theme of secret government is a common thread throughout Woodward’s career that has spawned 19 books – all national bestsellers – 13 of them Number One – more than any other contemporary nonfiction author. His 19th book, FEAR: Trump in the White House, was published on September 11, 2018.
In the process Woodward became the ultimate inside man. No one else in political investigative journalism has the clout, respect, and reputation of Woodward.
His work is meticulous and draws on internal memos, classified documents, meeting notes and hundreds of hours of interviews with most of the key players, including the president.
The Weekly Standard called Woodward “the best pure reporter of his generation, perhaps ever.” In 2003, Al Hunt of The Wall Street Journal called Woodward “the most celebrated journalist of our age.” In listing the all-time 100 best non-fiction books, Time magazine has called All the President’s Men, by Bernstein and Woodward, “Perhaps the most influential piece of journalism in history.”
