For the 40th anniversary of Richard Nixon’s resignation, North Haven’s Carl Bernstein and his colleague Bob Woodward will speak at Stony Brook University this Thursday.
Entitled “Looking at the Presidency: from Nixon to Obama,” the lecture is free and open to the public with limited seating on a first-come, first-served basis.
In the 1970s, Woodward and Bernstein set the standard for modern investigative reporting with a series of articles for The Washington Post that unraveled the Watergate scandal and led to the resignation of Nixon. Four decades later, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists and co-authors of All the President’s Men and The Final Days are still leading the charge for informative, unbiased journalism.
Woodward, the associate editor for the Washington Post, and Bernstein, a visiting presidential professor at Stony Brook University, are both frequent contributors on MSNBC, CNN and other major networks.
The lecture takes place at the Staller Center for the Arts, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, on Thursday, October 16, at 4 p.m.
