Event Type: Library Program|
Age Group(s): Adults
Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Time: 7:30 PM
A monthly series of fireside community conversations in which we seek to identify the common ground that unites Americans amidst the fissures that threaten it today. These stimulating theme-centered discussions regarding American values will be based on thought-provoking documentary film clips from the PBS Learning Media's American Creed Collection, and they will be facilitated by Paul Friedman, Ph.D. Each session may be enjoyed by itself, or you may wish to gain the depth of participating in the entire series.
Session 1: What does it mean to be an American? We will explore whether shared commitments have the power to bring us together as a nation, such as commitment to service and volunteerism, the pursuit of education, and the kind of respectful civil conversation that facilitates the free and open exchange of ideas.
