    Hi, Sharice!

    At our events, attendees have the opportunity to question statements made by panelists by submitting “fact checks” to the UMKC librarians that volunteer their time to be present at our conversations and research any purported facts. In addition to this, Nick Haines of KCPT will be the evening’s roving reporter and will open up the conversation to questions from the audience.
