Litquake's second event in our "Shadow & Light" series presents "The Most Dishonest People on Earth: Journalists Respond to Trump," another glimpse of sanity in an increasingly insane world. This current political climate demands honest and unvarnished media coverage. But is the American press doing enough to tell the truth behind the lies? Are we in a spiral of spin where truth no longer matters? With Lowell Bergman, Geoffrey Nunberg, Marisa Lagos, and Scott Shafer. Recorded live at the Koret Auditorium, San Francisco Public Library. https://www.facebook.com/litquake  https://twitter.com/Litquake

As with the rest of the world, Litquake has been festering over the unexpected election of Donald Trump. Do we publish a manifesto? Or curl up in the fetal position? Yes, times are dark indeed, but it’s incumbent on the creative class to stand tall and contribute. And so we present some diverse and electric Bay Area voices who speak to our nation’s fear, anger, and perhaps even optimism. With Elmaz Abinader, Robert Mailer Anderson, devorah major, Sarah Ladipo Manyika, and T.J. Stiles. Recorded live at the Koret Auditorium at San Francisco Public Library, main branch. https://www.facebook.com/litquake  https://twitter.com/Litquake
