WACO (October 21, 2013)-The McLennan Community College Distinguished Lecture series will feature journalist and author Bob Woodward Tuesday and a select group of students will meet with Woodward before the speech Tuesday.

A book signing and Q&A session will follow the lecture at 7 p.m.

The speech is free, but tickets are required.

Woodward is an award winning investigative journalist and nonfiction author.

He is best known for his work on the Watergate scandal with Carl Bernstein.

Their efforts helped the Washington Post win a Pulitzer Prize in 1973.

They chronicled the story in a book called "All the President's Men," which was later adapted into a film starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford.

The film will be shown free at 7 p.m. Monday in the Ball Performing Arts Center on campus.

In 2002, the Post won the National Affairs Pulitzer Prize for Woodward's reports on the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Woodward is currently an associate editor at the Washington Post and has worked there since 1971.
