NORWAY — Award-winning journalist Chet Lunner will discuss journalism today and how to navigate the reliable and unreliable information sources in the world from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 15, at Norway Memorial Library.

Lunner, a resident of Cape Elizabeth, served as the top news editor at the Biddeford Journal Tribune, Portland Evening Express and the Kennebec Journal, giving him a comprehensive view of the issues facing the state and personal access to the top leadership in both political parties across several administrations.

Lunner is the founding president of the Society of Professional Journalists, Maine Chapter, as well as a retired senior intelligence executive with the Department of Homeland Security. While there, he dealt with international media, served as subject matter expert for the White House, and testified before Congress.

In 1986 Lunner was at the Kennedy Space Center when he witnessed the Challenger space shuttle explosion. He reported as the on-scene correspondent for USA Today and the nationwide Gannet News Service newswire. The story that he wrote hangs in a place of honor at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., commemorating his national reporting skills.

The presentation is free and open to the public.
