WOULD IT KILL YOU TO BE MORE CIVIL?
Join NPR journalist Korva Coleman for a lively and timely dialogue about civility in public discourse, featuring The Baltimore Sun's Editorial Editor Andrew Green; David Frum, a contributing editor at Newsweek and The Daily Beast, CNN contributor, and author of the new novel, Patriots; and bestselling author Henry Alford, whose book Would It Kill You to Stop Doing That?: A Modern Guide to Manners, uncovers the purpose and principles of manners — and what's happened to them in our fast-moving, increasingly interconnected culture.
With the election campaign in full swing, panelists will address the declining civility in America in recent years in both the public arena and personal interactions.
