Event Information:

"Hiding Our Vices From Others: George Washington's Guide to Civility" is the topic of a discussion by Dr. William B. Allen on Friday, February 21, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Abingdon Library, 2510 Tollgate Road in Abingdon. The discussion is part of Choose Civility Harford County and is sponsored by Harford County Public Library in partnership with Harford County Government. Almost everyone has a story to share about uncivil behavior. Most people seem to agree that there could be more civility in our everyday lives but don't know where to start. During this program, Dr. Allen will provide an amusing and insightful look on the subject from the perspective of the United States' first president, George Washington. Dr. Allen, a member of the Harford County Public Library Board of Trustees, has a long and esteemed career in education. Currently, he is a visiting scholar in residence at the University of Colorado-Boulder. He served on the United States National Council for the Humanities and was chairman and member of the United States Commission on Civil Rights. The February 21 discussion is free and open to the public. Advanced registration is recommended by visiting HCPLonline.org or calling 410-638-3990.
