Tastemakers featuring Rex Sorgatz
Join us for a discussion with Rex Sorgatz about his eclectic new book, The Encyclopedia of Misinformation.
Mirroring the chicanery of our current political environment, this event will include interactive performances, brainteasers, and a robust conversation with Mpls.St.Paul Magazine’s Steve Marsh on the state of our media ecology. Expect an honest dialogue on those hyper-modern subjects: fake news, filter bubbles, crisis actors, social media disinformation, and of course, the scourge of Tide Pods.
Books will be available for purchase at the event from Magers & Quinn.
45 minute Q&A 15 minute audience questions; book-signing.

About the book:
This playful compendium — brimming with charts, illustrations, puzzles, plays, cross-references, footnotes — compiles tales and tactics of deception through history. The lens is wide, with acts of subterfuge culled from cognitive psychology, pop music, human sexuality, modern physics, reality television, pro wrestling, artificial intelligence, and every topic where things are not what they appear.
