Bristol Public Library's Discovery Series...

March 15, 2011

Bob Gibson, Executive Director of the Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership at the University of Virginia, will be speaking to the Bristol community as part of the Bristol Public Library’s 2011 Discovery Series on Tuesday, March 22nd at 7p.m.

According to Bob Gibson, politics are changing at an ever-faster pace, spurred by unrealistic timelines, short attention spans, and vast quantities of impatience. He will be speaking on today’s political climate, bipartisanship, and the idea that a government that can’t compromise is a government that can quickly fail. As a reporter and political analyst, he has earned a strong reputation for fairness and thoughtful commentary.

This event will be held in the J. Henry Kegley Meeting Room at the Bristol Public Library; doors will open at 6:00pm. Mr. Gibson’s presentation is free and open to the public, no ticket is required.
