BLUE HILL, Maine — The Blue Hill Public Library will be holding a four session series, in connection with the 26th annual Camden Conference, ‚ÄúThe U.S. in a 21st Century World: Do We Have What It Takes?‚ÄĚ Three of the sessions will take place on Tuesdays, Jan. 24, 31 and Feb. 7 (before the Feb. 17tto 19 conference in Camden), and one session will occur on Tuesday, Feb. 28 (after the Camden Conference). All are from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Library.
The series is designed to help participants to achieve optimal benefit from participation in the February 2012 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.
Born in China of missionary parents, Mr. Sargent is curator of ‚ÄúChina: Exploring the Interior, 1903-04‚ÄĚ– a traveling exhibit of photographs of the late Qing dynasty in China taken by his grandfather. Bob visited China most recently in November 2008. He 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.
