Join us for a talk by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Dan Fagin on the enduring power of evidence-based storytelling, even in a world awash in distrust, tribalism, sensation-seeking and, yes, fake news. 

A professor of journalism at New York University and director of their Science, Health and Environmental Reporting Program, Fagin has written for The New York Times, Scientific American, Nature and Slate. His 2013 book, Toms River, was lauded by the New York Times as a "new classic of science reporting." 

In this talk, Fagin will explain why he is optimistic about the future of effective science communication, despite the many obstacles it currently faces.

This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited. Please confirm your attendance register online in advance to reserve your place.
