On Thursday, nationally syndicated newspaper columnist Kathleen Parker will speak at the University of South Carolina on the topic of “Seeking Civility in America’s Political Discourse.”
The talk is free and open to the public and starts at 7 p.m. in the Belk Auditorium on USC’s campus.
Parker, who has long been known for her staunchly conservative columns, was one of the first prominent conservatives to question the qualifications of Vice Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin. Because her appearance was scheduled months before South Carolina Republican Representative Joe Wilson shouted ?You lie!? during a speech by President Barack Obama, school officials aren?t certain exactly what civil discourse topics she will touch on during the talk.
Parker?s columns appear in the Wednesday and Sunday editions of The Washington Post in addition to various papers nationwide.
