Event Details

Jim Fingal, assigned to fact check the piece, ignited a seven-year debate on the blurred lines of what passes for truth in literary nonfiction. As part of this special event, playwrights Jeremy Kareken (AB '91) and David Murrell (AB '90) will host a talk back exclusively for us after the show.

Please join us in what will be a great event.
