Woodward to speak in Indy


Washington Post editor and Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist Bob Woodward will speak in Indianapolis next month.

The event Nov. 6 at Scottish Rite Cathedral benefits the Indiana Bar Foundation.

Barnes & Thornburg Presents: An Evening with Bob Woodward is a celebration marking the 65th anniversary of the Foundation. Woodward’s speech – “Leadership: Presidents, CEOs and the Larger Lessons Learned” – will capture his more than 40 years of reporting.

Beyond Watergate, Woodward’s 17 books have documented relationships among justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, actions by the CIA in the 1980s, military leaders and every president since Richard Nixon. Woodward’s comments will include observations of The Washington Post’s new owner, Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com.

Woodward’s new Nixon book, “The Last of the President’s Men,” will be released Oct. 13.

Reservations are $225 per person or $1,500 for a reserved table of eight.

Reservations may be made online at www.inbf.org. The event is open to the public.

The event highlights the Foundation’s mission of increasing access to legal representation for impoverished Hoosiers and education about the rule of law.
