Have you ever shared something on social media only to learn that it's not 100% accurate? Or, worse still, wholly untrue? If so, you're not alone. In today's hyper-connected world we're inundated with information and it's not always clear where that information comes from. It can be difficult to separate fact from fiction in such an environment - but we can help!

Join us on Saturday, September 29, 10-11:30 am to learn how to identify common types of digital information, as well as tips and tricks for sorting fact from fiction. Don't be embarrassed - identify bias, bluster, and baloney before you share!   

Ages 18+.  Registration is required.
