The Golden Era Of The Washington Post

Little Falls Library
5501 Massachusetts Avenue
Bethesda, MD 20816
“The Golden Era of the Washington Post,” with Bob Levey, award-winning journalist, columnist and radio talk show host, whose works include Washington Album: A Pictorial History of the Nation’s Capital, a 200-page illustrated history of the local city and his first novel, Larry Felder, Candidate. SEATING LIMITED. PLEASE BE SURE TO REGISTER. CARPOOLING RECOMMENDED.
Bob Levey will recount his most memorable moments throughout his 36 years working for The Washington Post, including being hired by Ben Bradlee and being seated between Bernstein and Woodward during Watergate. He will also discuss his newest publication, Larry Felder, Candidate, which details the story of a famous Washington newspaper columnist (Felder) who abandons journalism to run for congress in Maryland’s 8th District, Montgomery County. For 23 years, Levey wrote a daily column, “Bob Levey’s Washington,” for The Washington Post. The column looked at all aspects of life in the nation’s capital and won major awards from the Society of Professional Journalists and The Washington Journalism Review. Levey was voted the 1994 Radio Talk Show Host of the Year in the Washington Market and was named one of the most important radio talk show hosts in America by Talkers Magazine in 1996. In 1999, Levey was also named Washingtonian of the Year by Washingtonian magazine in recognition of his community service through his column and hands-on volunteer work. The presentation will be followed by a book sale and signing.
