Keynote Speaker: Bob Woodward


Opening Session, Monday, August 11, 2003 8:15 a.m.-10:00 a.m.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

Bob Woodward, managing editor of the Washington Post and famous investigative reporter, will be the Keynote Speaker at the American Correctional Association's 133rd Congress of Correction Opening Session. An American icon and award-winning journalist, Mr. Woodward will undoubtedly inspire attendees to make a difference.

After working for only nine months on the Post's metropolitan staff, Mr. Woodward, an inexperienced but hard-driving and aggressive investigative reporter at the time, fortuitously landed the journalistic assignment of the 1970s. Teamed with Carl Bernstein, he pursued the mushrooming Watergate affair from the break-in of the Democratic National Committee's headquarters in 1972 to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon in 1974. For this reportage, the pair earned a number of journalism awards and won for the Washington Post the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for meritorious public service.

Mr. Woodward is the only contemporary American writer to author or co-author eight #1 national bestselling non-fiction books, including: All the President's Men (1974) and The Final Days (1976), both co-written with Carl Bernstein and based on their reporting of the Watergate affair. Other books include: The Brethren: Inside the Supreme Court (1979); Wired: The Short Life and Fast Times of John Belushi (1984); Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA 1981-1987 (1987); The Commanders (1991), a book on the Gulf War; The Agenda: Inside the Clinton White House (June 1994); and Shadow: Five Presidents and the Legacy of Watergate (1999). His latest book, Maestro: Greenspan's Fed and the American Boom, about the Federal Reserve and its enigmatic chairman, Alan Greenspan, has been a national bestseller since its release in November 2000.
