Keynote Speaker: Bob Woodward


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

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.

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. …
