Woodward is an assistant managing editor of the Washington Post, where he has worked since 1971. He has won nearly every American journalism award, including a Pulitzer for his report on the Watergate scandal. He earned a second Pulitzer as lead reporter for the team that reported on the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Woodward has coauthored or authored more number-one national best-selling nonfiction books than any contemporary American writer. They include All the President’s Men and The Final Days, coauthored with Carl Bernstein; The Brethren: Inside the Supreme Court, coauthored with Scott Armstrong; Wired: The Short Life and Fast Times of John Belushi, Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA 1981–1987, The Commanders, The Agenda: Inside the Clinton White House, Shadow: Five Presidents and the Legacy of Watergate, Bush at War, and Plan of Attack.

The topic of Mr. Woodward's lecture is “What Can President Obama Learn from Presidents Past?” There will be a question and answer session and after the lecture, and there will be a book signing in Fisher’s mezzanine.
