Journalism icons and authors Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein will participate in a conversation about current events as Northeastern Illinois University presents the third installment of the Daniel L. Goodwin Distinguished Lecture Series at 3701 W. Bryn Mawr Ave. on Thursday, Feb. 8, at 7:30 p.m. ( book-signing at 8:45 p.m. ).
It will be the first time the two have appeared together since the November 2016 election.
In the early 1970s, Woodward and Bernstein broke the Watergate story for The Washington Post, leading to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. The story set the standard for modern investigative reporting, for which they and The Post were awarded the Pulitzer Prize.
Dr. Katrfina Bell-Jordan, interim dean of the school's College of Arts and Sciences, will serve as moderator on Feb. 8.
