Endowment Fund Speaker Event: Carl Bernstein

Join us for Congregation Emanu El’s 2018 featured Endowment Fund Speaker Event, An Evening with Carl Bernstein- Washington, the Media, the Presidency, from the Age of Nixon to the Age of Trump. 

No stranger to the grind of Washington, renown journalist Carl Bernstein began part-time work at the Washington Star at the age of 16 and later dropped out of the University of Maryland to work full-time as a reporter. Bernstein made a historic name for himself when along with Bob Woodward, he uncovered the Watergate scandal which led to the resignation of U.S. President Richard Nixon.

Bernstein shared a Pulitzer Prize with Woodward for their coverage of Watergate for The Washington Post. Bernstein’s most recent book is the acclaimed biography, A Woman in Charge: The Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton. He is the author, with Woodward, of All the President’s Men and The Final Days, and, with Marco Politi, of His Holiness: John Paul II and the History of Our Time.

He is also the author of Loyalties, a memoir about his parents during McCarthy–era Washington. He has written for Vanity Fair (he is also a contributing editor), Time, USA Today, Rolling Stone, and The New Republic. He was a Washington bureau chief and correspondent for ABC News. At The Washington Post, Bernstein also was a part-time rock critic, and he still occasionally writes about music.

This program is underwritten by the Congregation Emanu El Endowment Fund through grants from the Caplovitz Lectureship Fund, Eleanor & Frank Freed Lectureship Fund, Helen & Harry Reichek Lectureship Fund, Rabbi Roy A. Walter Legacy Fund and the Friends of the Endowment Fund.  

Arrangements for the appearance of Carl Bernstein made through Greater Talent Network, Inc., New York, NY.
