Fact-checking and plagiarism are making headlines yet again. What better time than now to consider getting facts right? Come celebrate the publication of The Chicago Guide to Fact-Checking, a new book by Brainery teacher Brooke Borel. The guide is perfect for: Journalism students, newsrooms, freelancers, authors, publishers, documentarians, librarians, high school and college students writing research papers with the internet, Melania Trump's speechwriters, that Facebook friend who earnestly posts Onion articles, and more.

Brooke will give a short talk on fact-checking and the media, and read short selections of her book. Then the floor is all yours for a Q&A. After, you’ll have time to mingle with other guests over complimentary beer and wine. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
