On June 17, 1972, five men were arrested during a break-in at the Watergate Complex in Washington D.C. The next day there was a routine crime story about the “burglary.”

Then, on June 19, just two days after the break-in, a story began with a single sentence that changed American history.

“One of the five men arrested early Saturday in the attempt to bug the Democratic National Committee headquarters is the salaried security coordinator for President Nixon’s reelection committee.”

An American presidency began to unravel and Robert Redford played the role of Bob Woodward in a movie.

The Mercantile Library is honored to present Bob Woodward for the 2019 Niehoff Lecture.

Woodward has authored or coauthored 19 national best-selling books. Thirteen have been #1 national non-fiction bestsellers. Woodward has written books on nine of the most recent presidents, from Nixon to Trump. In 2018 “Fear: Trump in the White House” sold over two million copies its first three months in the U.S. alone.

Tickets: $175.00 for members, $230 for nonmembers. Nonmembers PLUS membership: $230.

The evening includes a cocktail reception, multi-course dinner, and the lecture. Black-tie attire.
