Maverick Speaker Series: Bob Woodward

Bob Woodward, the legendary Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist, kicks off an exceptional year for the 12th annual Maverick Speakers Series at The University of Texas at Arlington.

Woodward will speak about “The State of the American Presidency” on Thursday, Sept. 19, at Texas Hall on the UTA campus. His latest book, Fear: Trump in the White House, was published in 2018.

Woodward is an associate editor of The Washington Post, where he has worked since 1971. He has shared in two Pulitzer Prizes, the first in 1973 for his coverage of the Watergate scandal with Carl Bernstein, and the second in 2002 as the lead reporter for coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Woodward’s first book with Bernstein, All the President’s Men, was about former President Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal. The book was made into an award-winning movie.

He has since written 19 books on American politics, 13 of which topped bestseller lists, all while continuing his work for The Washington Post.
