Pants on Fire: A Discussion About Fake News
Join us on Wednesday, March 1st from 7:00 – 8:30 PM in the Hermann Foundation Meeting Room for a discussion about fake news, what it is and how to recognize it, and maybe even a little history of fake news. Joining us will be Allison Butler, U. Mass, Amherst professor and steering committee of Mass Media Literacy, and Sean Corcoran, news director and senior reporter at WCAI in Woods Hole. They will be addressing your concerns through your questions and dialogue.
This program was suggested to us by a library patron who was confused about how best one can identify fake news. We’ll do the best we can to help you understand what it is and how not to spread it around. Please give us a call or send us an e-mail if you would like to attend, so we have an idea of how many chairs to put out! You can contact us at 508-457-2555, ext. 6 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
