Event Description:

Spot the charlatan in our game of facts, fiction, and fibs!

It is tempting to think history is nothing but names, dates, and deceased subjects. Not true! In reality, history is a dynamic subject constantly evolving as historians find new sources. But how do we discern what is true when sources sometimes deliberately lie to us? When do we slip from fact to fiction? Through the guise of a lighthearted game, this event will challenge participants to examine the intersection of fact and fiction through rounds of storytelling and source interpretation that the audience gets to vote on!

Free parking (first come, first serve) available in the History Center lot at New York and West Streets. Accessible off New York.

Walk-ins welcome. RSVPs encouraged by Nov. 3

Presented by Indiana Historical Society; American Indian Center of Indiana, Inc.; and Kennedy King Memorial Initiative.
