Brookline Village

TUESDAY, November 27 at 7 PM

Join Hank Phillippi Ryan and Callie Crossley as they explore questions inspired by Ryan’s newest psychological thriller, Trust Me: How do we know what to believe?

Drawing from their work in journalism and fiction, they will discuss the idea of hunting for the real story, the work of reporters to discover and convey the truth, and the true crime stories that inspired Trust Me.
