Science Matters Brown Bag Forums are monthly lunch-and-learn programs co-sponsored by the Linda Hall Library and the Kansas City Public Library.  The forums will focus on science-related topics that impact Kansas Citians. Bring your lunch and join the conversation!

The event is free and open to the public; however, e-tickets are required.

Maps spur our imagination. Maps transport us. In maps we trust. But all maps are lies. Filled with examples of maps from the Show-Me State and beyond, this presentation will forever change the way you look at maps. You will come away as a more informed and discerning map reader with an understanding that “not only is it easy to lie with maps, it is essential.”  The speaker Kelly Johnston is a Missouri native. 

The Linda Hall Library and the Kansas City Public Library would like to thank the Missouri Humanities Council for making this program possible. Find out more about their organization by visiting
