State Theatre New Jersey presents An Evening With Bob Woodward - The State of the American Presidency. Moderated by Governor Christine Todd Whitman, Woodward provides a behind the scene look into his 47 year career from Watergate to his latest book, as well as the current state of politics.
Iconic investigative journalist, Bob Woodward has worked for The Washington Post for 47 years and is the winner of nearly every American journalism award, including two Pulitzers—the first with Bernstein for their Watergate coverage and the second as the lead reporter for the Post's coverage of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. He is a reporter-historian with an aggressive but fair and non-partisan reputation for digging deep to uncover Washington’s secrets. He captivates audiences with stories that are sometimes surprising, at times shocking, and always fascinating. Woodward helps people get behind the spin to understand what’s really going on in the halls of power in an age of 24-hour news, social media, and snarky politics.
He is the author of 13 #1 bestsellers—more than any contemporary nonfiction writer—and 19 bestsellers including his latest, FEAR: Trump in the Whitehouse. He has written articles and books about the last nine presidents from Nixon to Trump.
Bob Woodward's FEAR: Trump in the White House, is the most detailed and penetrating portrait of a sitting president in the first year of an administration. FEAR sold more than 1.1 million copies in its first week in the United States, breaking the 94-year first-week sales record of its publisher Simon & Schuster. During this show Woodward will provide an inside look into the Trump presidency.
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 . . . his ability to get people to talk about stuff they shouldn’t be talking about is just extraordinary and may be unique.” That is Woodward’s true gift and audiences who hear him speak leave transfixed by what they’ve learned.
