"What Happened to the News? Reading the “news” in the age of internet and social media sources."
More Info:

Join our monthly Education Series.  This is an opportunity for us to have civic, civil dialogue across our community and potentially to help us bridge the political divide here in Flathead County. Open to the public and focusing on issues that matter to all, it's an excellent way to get informed on topics that are highly relevant in today's complex world.
