P.M. Forni to discuss ‘Age of Distraction’ at Barnes & Noble

In his first two books, Choosing Civility and The Civility Solution, P.M. Forni taught readers the rules of civil behavior and ways of responding to rudeness. Now the professor of Romance languages and literatures—and founder of The Civility Initiative at Johns Hopkins—turns his attention elsewhere: In The Thinking Life: How to Thrive in the Age of Distraction, he gives readers remedies for dealing with today’s constant demands on their attention.

At 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29, Forni will discuss and sign copies of the new book at Barnes & Noble Johns Hopkins.
