Internationally acclaimed author Jon Ronson spoke at Henderson State Sept. 20 about his book So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed.
In the book, Ronson investigates the obsession with social media and its sometimes disastrous impact on lives and collective conscience.
Ronson’s books The Psychopath Test, Lost at Sea, and The Men Who Stare At Goats have all been international and/or New York Times best sellers.
The Men Who Stare At Goats has been adapted into a movie and Ronson himself has done script writing for Netflix and award winning documentaries.
Ronson’s appearance was part of Henderson’s fall Reddie Read program which was started in fall 2006 with Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner. Through reading and discussing a common book, everyone on campus has the opportunity to engage in formal and informal discussions about issues of importance in today’s world.
