Event description

Description

The directors of the LBJ Presidential Library and the Harry Ransom Center host a special evening with journalist and author Bob Woodward and former Nixon aide Alexander Butterfield. They will discuss Woodward’s recent book, The Last of the President’s Men, and Butterfield’s experiences in the Nixon White House. Mark Updegrove, Director of the LBJ Presidential Library, will moderate the conversation.

In his book, Bob Woodward details the incredible story of Alexander Butterfield, who served as deputy to White House Chief of Staff H. R. Haldeman and who revealed the secret White House taping system that led to Nixon’s resignation. The Harry Ransom Center holds the Woodward and Bernstein Watergate Papers and has partnered with the LBJ Presidential Library to make this event possible. A reservation is required for this event.

Doors will open at 5:15 p.m. You will check in with your name; you do not need to present a printed confirmation. One person per reservation. Guests are not permitted. A reservation holds your seat until 5:50 p.m. on the day of the program; seats that remain unclaimed at that time will be released to the stand-by line.

Prior to the event, The Store at LBJ will host Woodward and Butterfield for a book signing of The Last of the President’s Men. Book sales begin at 4:45 p.m. in the upper Auditorium lobby, and Woodward and Butterfield will sign from 5 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. Only books purchased through The Store at LBJ will be eligible for signing. Please do not bring books from home to be signed. Proceeds benefit the LBJ Presidential Library.
