War of the (Information) Worlds
Thu, Jun 8, 6-7pm, Fincastle Library
Orson Welles was only 23 when he pranked the world in 1938. His radio performance of “War of the Worlds” convinced many that Martians had invaded New Jersey. (Some say they’re still there…) Little has changed. Now in an age of ChatGPT, deep fakes, and artificial intelligence, something distinctly human remains: the ability to ask a good question. Join us for a lively talk and discussion with guest speaker Josh Urban. Recommended for adults and teens.
