The Daniel L. Goodwin Distinguished Lecture Series will feature Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein on Feb. 8. Northeastern Illinois University College of Arts and Sciences Interim Dean Katrina Bell-Jordan will moderate the event, which will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Auditorium. A book-signing will follow.
Woodward and Bernstein broke the Watergate story for The Washington Post in the early 1970s, leading to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. The story set the standard for modern investigative reporting, for which they and The Post were awarded the Pulitzer Prize. It is an honor to have Woodward and Bernstein on stage in our Auditorium—the first time they have appeared together since the November 2016 election.
