Reality. It used to seem so simple. And then came the assault, an unending stream of “fake news,” “alternative facts,” and lies disguised as truths that are overwhelming our notions of reality. Now we can’t even agree on what a fact is, let alone what is real.

How on earth did we get here? That’s what we’ll explore in this fascinating “Join the Conversation” event with Brooke Gladstone, co-host of WNYC’s On The Media and author of the recently-published book, The Trouble with Reality: A Rumination On Moral Panic in Our Time.

Brooke will discuss her book, take your questions, and sign copies of her book after the presentation.

Join us for what will surely prove to be a thoughtful discussion! Ticket price includes a copy of the book.  Hosted by WSHU.
