2020 Book Bracket: What title is bound for No. 1?

Woodward and Bernstein’s All the President’s Men is an early fan favorite in the inaugural 2020 Book Bracket, organized by the National Press Club Journalism Institute. 

The Institute took suggestions for the best — and your favorite — journalism books through Friday, March 27. We’ll release the bracket on Wednesday, April 1. Help us discover the best in journalism books as titles you submit battle it down to the No. 1 title we want on our bookshelves by voting through each round.

Dozens of titles, including She SaidOn Writing WellThe Boys on the Bus, and Prisoner, have been shared so far. They cover current affairs, fiction, memoirs, textbooks, books about journalists, books by journalists.

Institute staff are seeding the submissions based on popularity and will pit one title against another. Your votes will determine the winners in each round — and help us populate the National Press Club’s Eric Friedheim National Journalism Library as we curate new titles for the collection later this year.
