Politeness and Public Life in Early America and Today by Steven C. Bullock

7:00pm-9:00pm

American Antiquarian Society

185 Salisbury Street

Worcester, MA 01609

Long before current fears about incivility in public life , before anxieties about Twitter shaming and cable-news name-calling,  politeness was very much on the minds of American leaders.
