Join us at the JFK Hyannis Museum on May 1st at 5:30 PM as we host a live viewing of the Kennedy Library Forum live webcast “A Conversation with Bob Schieffer and Jill Lepore”. This event is free to attend.
Former longtime CBS journalist Bob Schieffer discusses his new book, Overload: Finding the Truth in Today’s Deluge of News, with Harvard professor of history and author of These Truths: A History of the United States, Jill Lepore.
About The Book
From the explosion of fake news to the challenges of the 24 hour news cycle, legendary journalist Bob Schieffer examines political journalism today and those who practice it. Based on interviews with over 40 media leaders, Schieffer provides an inside look at the changing role of media and asks whether today’s citizens are more informed or just overwhelmed.
