The New Africa (Discussion Series @ Blue Hill Public Library)
February 8, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 2:15 pm EST
Blue Hill Public Library will be holding a three session discussion series in connection with the 29th annual Camden Conference (February 19th to 21st in Camden). The theme of the conference is “The New Africa.” The Blue Hill Library discussion sessions are free, and will take place on three Mondays, February 8th and 15th, and 29th, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM at the Library. This series is designed to help participants achieve optimal benefit from participation in the Camden Conference.
The sessions will be moderated by Bob Sargent, a former U.S. diplomat whose overseas assignments included Belgium, Bulgaria, the Netherlands, Tunisia, Turkey and Vietnam. Mr. Sargent is a former member of the Camden Conference Board of Directors and Advisory Board and a three-time conference program chair.
The Camden Conference was founded in 1987 as a nonprofit, non-partisan educational organization whose mission is to foster informed discourse on world issues. In the years since, it has convened its annual Conference on the third weekend of February in the historic Camden Opera House, drawing some of the best minds on foreign policy to share their insights and expertise on a range of global issues with the community.
Space is limited for the Blue Hill Library series, so participants are asked to register using the Library’s interactive calendar found at www.bhpl.net or by calling the Library at 374-5515.
