Best-selling author and Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter Bob Woodward will kick off Town Hall’s 85th season on Oct. 19 at the William Saroyan Theatre.

Woodward’s topic for the 10:30 a.m. lecture: Will Investigative Journalism Survive?

No one perhaps is better suited to answer that question than the reporter who teamed with Carl Bernstein to uncover the Watergate scandal, which ultimately forced President Richard Nixon to resign from the White House.

Nearly 50 years later, Woodward remains America’s top investigative reporter and chronicler of U.S. presidents.

He “may be the best reporter of all time,” says Bob Schieffer of CBS News.

Woodward teamed with reporter Robert Costa on the book “Peril,” which examined the transition from President Donald Trump to President Joe Biden. That book culminated Woodward’s trilogy on the Trump presidency, which also included “Fear” and “Rage.”

Fear sold more than 1 million copies in a week, and Rage sold 600,000 copies the week of its release.
