President Donald Trump and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price on Capitol Hill in late March.

PEN America is hosting an event about how the Trump administration's attempts to spread false information or delegitimize facts are affecting journalism, science and national security. We hear from PEN America's Executive Director Suzanne Nossel, the Center for American Progress' Vikram Singh and New York Times White House correspondent Glenn Thrush. Author David McAninch discusses his time living in a rural part of Southwest France and participating in the region’s agricultural traditions. Comedian Robert Klein and director Marshall Fine discuss their film, “Robert Klein Still Can’t Stop His Leg." The film profiles the legendary comic's long career. Miwa Messer, director of the Discover Great New Writers program for Barnes & Noble, and authors Angela Flournoy and Kristen Radtke join us to discuss their picks for the best summer reads by emerging artists.
