Hadassah 'investigating' Bernstein as guest speaker
Questions about politics, policies, politicians, the media or even rock music? Ask Carl Bernstein.
Pulitzer Prize-winning author and Watergate investigative reporter Carl Bernstein shares his insights at 7 p.m. May 9 at the Westin Park Central, where he'll be keynote speaker at a fundraiser sponsored by the Dallas Chapter of Hadassah. Bernstein has a new book coming out next year on former First Lady and now New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Bernstein is known for the best-selling books as All the President's Men and The Final Days, co-authored with Bob Woodward; plus articles for Time, Newsweek, The Washington Post, The New Republic, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and Vanity Fair. As author and commentator, he has covered everything from McCarthyism to rock music to the fall of communism and present-day politics.
Bernstein is one of the few journalists who has worked his way to the top in newspapers, books, magazines, television and now, the Web. He has been Washington Bureau Chief and Senior Correspondent for ABC-TV. Currently, he is Executive Vice President and Executive Editor of Voter.com.
Bernstein is former President of Northern Region and honorary International President of B'nai B'rith Youth. He is coming to Dallas to speak at the Dallas Chapter of Hadassah's Major Gifts Event. Contributions will benefit gene therapy research being done to find cures for such diseases as cancer, multiple sclerosis, leukemia, heart disease, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and more.
