THIS SUNDAY: TAN @ Brooklyn Book Festival
The BROOKLYN BOOK FAIR has a ton of amazing writers, panels, readings this Sunday. I'm fortunate to be a guest on one of the late afternoon panels.
SUNDAY, 9/18, BROOKLYN HISTORICAL SOCIETY MAIN HALL (128 Pierrepont Street)
5:00 P.M. Media Representations and Reality. The debate continues over whether the media reflects reality or has a hand in shaping it. Like Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, the act of presenting the news can very often alter it. No one knows this better than Brooke Gladstone of "On the Media," whose new book The Influencing Machine with Josh Neufeld examines the role of the media in American society. Patrice Evans, (Negropedia), examines media representations of African-Americans, and Jennifer Pozner (Reality Bites Back) looks at the completely unreal world of reality television. Moderated by Juan Gonzalez (News for All the People).
