Fact or Fabrication in Today’s News

fakeThe Williamstown and North Adams Public Libraries are co-sponsoring a public forum on media literacy at the Williamstown Youth Center, 66 School Street, in Williamstown, MA on Monday, March 27 at 7 p.m.  Moderator and State Representative Gailanne Cariddi will lead a seven member panel of educators and reporters in a spirited discussion of news reporting in the pressurized digital age. Librarian Krista McLeod will also be on hand to talk about the role of librarians in helping students and ordinary citizens verify their news sources before committing to a potentially false narrative. We hope the audience will bring plenty of questions and comments about the current state of news in all its formats. For more information contact Pat McLeod at 458-5369 or  Mindy Hackner at 662-3133
