The New History of Watergate

Live Event
December 7: 7:00 pm

Fifty years after five burglars were caught inside the Watergate offices of the Democratic National Committee, the scandal that brought down Richard Nixon’s presidency continues to reverberate in modern American politics. Journalist Garrett M. Graff, author of Watergate: A New History, discusses how Watergate shaped modern Washington, and how the events of 1971-1974 are stranger, wilder, and weirder than our popular memory.
