The South Haven Speakers Series, with the theme "Issues, Innovations and Ideas Shaping our Lives", was launched in 2015 for the purpose of informing citizens by stimulating thought on significant issues of the day through presentations by non-partisan experts not otherwise available to South Haven. The 2016 series will feature five presentations beginning in April and continuing through October.
The Series is made possible through grants from the South Haven Community Foundation, Meijer, and Carole & Don Hodgman. Refreshments are served after the presentation.
The final presentation of the 2016 season will be "Fake News: 2016" by author Brad Schwartz on Thursday, October 20. The author of "Broadcast Hysteria: Orson Welles's War of the Worlds and the Art of Fake News," he will discuss the fake news of 2016 and challenge the audience to be aware of the need to fact check what is being said.
