Bob Woodward Comes to DPAC on February 2, 2019

September 25, 2018 (Durham, NC) - Bob Woodward's Fear: Trump in the White House, currently the #1 international bestseller, is the most detailed and penetrating portrait of a sitting president in the first year of an administration. Fear sold more than 1.1 million copies in its first week in the United States, breaking the 94-year first-week sales record of its publisher Simon & Schuster.

On Saturday February 2, 2019 Bob Woodward will provide an inside look into the Trump presidency at DPAC.

The extraordinary interest in Woodward’s Fear is fueled by people’s hunger to truly understand what is going on in Washington. As he travels the country, Bob Woodward says people’s questions fall into four categories:

1) The presidency: How is President Trump doing and surviving? How does Trump compare with the other eight presidents – Nixon to Obama – that Woodward has reported on for The Washington Post and in his bestselling books?

2) The investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller: Is it like Watergate or will it fade away like Reagan's Iran-Contra scandal?

3) Conflict: What is the likelihood of a new war? What are the goals with North Korea, in the Middle East, with the Islamic state, and on terrorism? Will there likely be a major escalation in one of the current conflicts? 

4) The economy: Is the American/global economy sound or are we headed for trouble? How is Trump’s America First agenda playing out with our allies and enemies around the globe?

Woodward has worked for The Washington Post for 47 years and shared in two Pulitzer Prizes--- the first with Bernstein for their Watergate coverage and the second as the lead reporter for the Post's coverage of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Bob Woodward has written 19 books. All have been national bestsellers--13 of them (now including Fear) have been #1 national nonfiction bestsellers.  He has written articles and books about the last nine presidents from Nixon to Trump.

A Conversation with Bob Woodward is not to be missed.
