Bob Schieffer on “Overload”: A question and answer session about the state of today’s news.
5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 2
Kelly Alumni Center
Join our college namesake and legendary journalist Bob Schieffer as he takes questions about his new book “Overload: Finding the Truth in Today’s Deluge of News.” The book is based on interviews of more than 40 leading journalists and news executives conducted by Schieffer and H. Andrew Schwartz, chief communications officer at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, for their weekly podcast “About the News.” “Overload” asks the question whether people today, who have access to more information than anyone in history, are better informed or simply overloaded by all that information? The book will be published Oct. 1 by Rowman & Littlefield Publishers and includes a chapter by Schieffer College dean, Dr. Kristie Bunton. A reception and book sales and signing will follow the question and answer session.
