Wading through propaganda and subterfuge in eclectic contexts, from science and religion, to comedy and law, Rex Sorgatz has explored it all. He has sifted through various conspiracy theories, the complex construct of internet and popular culture, and perplexing psychological phenomena, gathering them together in one humorous collection. His book covers deliriously diverse subjects including auto-tune, Chilean sea bass, false flag operations, kayfabe, laugh tracks, Rachel Dolezal, and more.
Join us in the Rare Book Room as Rex shares his debut encyclopedic work with a panel of experts, including Taylor Lorenz from the Daily Beast.
