An Evening With Bob Woodward*

Oct 01, 2020

Join us for an evening with bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bob Woodward, who will discuss his explosive new book Rage, the balance between journalism and history, and his nearly 50-year career covering nine presidents. The conversation will be moderated by Mark K. Updegrove, President and CEO of the LBJ Foundation, and presented by the LBJ Presidential Library, the Harry Ransom Center, and the School of Journalism and Media at The University of Texas at Austin.

The program will premiere at 7:00 pm CDT on Thursday, October 1. A link to view will be emailed to registrants earlier that day. We will not be taking comments or questions live— please submit your questions in advance, as part of the registration process, to help streamline the program. We welcome your comments on our Facebook and YouTube channels.

About the speaker:

Bob Woodward is an associate editor at The Washington Post where he has worked for 49 years and reported on every American president from Nixon to Trump. He has shared in two Pulitzer Prizes, first for the Post’s coverage of the Watergate scandal with Carl Bernstein, and second 20 years later as the lead Post reporter for coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

About the book:

Bob Woodward’s new book, Rage, is an unprecedented and intimate tour de force of new reporting on the Trump presidency facing a global pandemic, economic disaster and racial unrest.

In 17 on-the-record interviews with Woodward over seven volatile months—an utterly vivid window into Trump’s mind—the president provides a self-portrait that is part denial and part combative interchange mixed with surprising moments of doubt as he glimpses the perils in the presidency and what he calls the “dynamite behind every door.”

Book sales:

Signed, bookplated copies of Rage can be purchased from The Store at LBJ. Books will be shipped to the address provided unless you choose curbside pick-up during the check-out process. Curbside pick-up is available on Fridays from 10am-2pm. Purchase your copy now.
