LGC Sponsors Chicago Humanities Festival session with award-winning journalist Brooke Gladstone

Sunday, October 29, 2017
2:00 - 3:00 p.m.


Join us as we sponsor award-winning journalist Brooke Gladstone at the Chicago Humanities Festival. 

Every week, Gladstone reaches the listeners of over 450 public radio stations through WNYC’s On the Media. With her front-row perch on the day’s events and genius for making insightful, rapid-fire connections, Gladstone comes to CHF to discuss The Trouble with Reality. She demonstrates that reality was never what one might think—there is and always has been a bubble. People are subjective and prey to stereotypes, which makes reality more vulnerable than ever imagined. Drawing from writers as wide-ranging as Hannah Arendt, Walter Lippmann, and Jonathan Swift, she dissects this strategy straight out of the authoritarian playbook and shows how the Trump team mastered it. Finally, she offers hope—the inevitable reckoning (history tells us we can count on it), and a way to recover reality.
