'Choose Civility' Symposium to Focus on Decline
National commentators will use elections as context for discussion at Howard County Library.
The Howard County Library System is gearing up for another Choose Civility symposium on Oct. 11, and panelists will be paying particular attention to campaign rhetoric leading up to the presidential election in November.
"With the election campaign in full swing, panelists will address the declining civility in America in the recent years," according to a statement from the Howard County System.
Korva Coleman, a journalist for National Public Radio, will again be moderating the symposium in Ellicott City.
The panel will feature David Frum, who is an author, Newsweek contributing editor and CNN contributor; Andrew Green, The Baltimore Sun editorial editor; and Henry Alford, author of Would It Kill You to Stop Doing That?: A Modern Guide to Manners.
Join the discussion at the Miller Branch Library in Ellicott City from 6:15 to 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 11.
