The Winslow Public Library will host the presentation “The Impact of Fake News” at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20, at the library at 136 Halifax St.

A former journalist and retired executive, presenter Chet Lunner has a 360-degree perspective on fake news, the First Amendment, and an inside-the-Beltway view of the national government.

His talk is part of The World in Your Library program, a speaker series focused on current events, both local and international, sponsored by the Maine Humanities Council and the Margaret Chase Smith Foundation.

Lunner has been a Maine newspaper editor, Congressional chief of staff, 9/11 press secretary, homeland security intelligence officer, and staffer to four Cabinet secretaries. He worked with, or consulted for USA Today, U.S. Congress and the TSA and DHS.
