Montgomery County Public Libraries Contemporary Conversations to Host Bob Levey, Former Washington Post Columnist and TV-radio Commentator

Bob Levey
Prize-winning journalist and TV-radio commentator Bob Levey is the guest for the upcoming Contemporary Conversations @ MCPL series presented by Montgomery County Public Libraries. The free event will take place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, at the Chevy Chase Library located at 8005 Connecticut Ave.

Levey will discuss the status of journalism today and talk about his 37-year career as a reporter who covered all aspects of life in the nation’s capital. For 23 years, he wrote a daily column, “Bob Levey’s Washington,” for The Washington Post. Seven times, Levey was named one of the most popular columnists in Washington by Washingtonian Magazine.

Additionally, Levy will talk about his recent novel, “Larry Felder, Candidate”, which takes a close-up look at big-time newspaper and contemporary Washington-area politics. The book tells the story of a long-time D.C. journalist who decides to run for Congress in Montgomery County.

Early signup is recommended as these events typically fill. Registration is available at the MCPL website.
