Join us for an interactive presentation on the state of the media and particularly the Chicago news ecosystem, led by Susy Schultz.

Journalism is written into the constitution, yet what does that mean?

  • What is news?
  • What is “fake” and what is real?
  • Is social media dismantling our whole delivery of information?

Schultz is president of Public Narrative, a nonprofit which teaches storytelling to people in nonprofits as well as journalists.

This presentation is brought to you by the Edgebrook Community Association and its wonderful members.
