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 is taking suggestions for the best - and your favorite - journalism books through Friday, March 27. Missing the excitement of March Madness? 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.

Dozens of titles, including She Said, On Writing Well, The Boys on the Bus, and Prisoner, have been nominated so far. To participate, share your favorite journalism books. They can cover current affairs, fiction, memoirs, textbooks, books about journalists, books by journalists - whatever you consider a journalism book. There is no limit, but please rank them in order of preference.

Make it even more interesting: Share this with your friends to get them involved. Everyone loves a little competition.

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