Fake News, the Virus and Social Unrest: How to get the information you need to stay safe and sane in uncertain times  

The global COVID-19 pandemic and social unrest over racial justice has spread accompanied by confusing, misleading and politically charged information, leaving people uncertain about how to get reliable information. Please join us on June 18 at the Conway Public Library for an online program featuring veteran national journalist Randall Mikkelsen to discuss how to stay safe, sane and well informed in confusing times.”
