Event description

Description

Schomburg Director Kevin Young’s latest book, Bunk: The Rise of Hoaxes, Humbug, Plagiarists, Phonies, Post-Facts, and Fake News, traces the history of the hoax as a peculiarly American phenomenon—the legacy of P. T. Barnum’s “humbug” culminating with the currency of President Donald Trump’s “fake news.”

A book signing will follow.
