Civil discourse

Francois-Olivier Luiggi, general manager of The Pierre, an iconic, award-winning Taj Hotel on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, will give a talk on “Civility at the Best Luxury Hotels” on Tuesday, May 23 at 6 p.m. at The Ferguson Library in Stamford. 

His talk will focus on the art of discreet, understated style and hospitality embodied in only a few of the world’s great hotels.  

His appearance is part of a series on “Civility in America” sponsored by The Dilenschneider Group, Hearst Media Group in Connecticut and The Ferguson Library.

 Robert L. Dilenschneider, founder and president of The Dilenschneider Group, who conceived the idea for the series, said, “Incivility has become socially acceptable and commonplace.  The lack of civility in every segment of society, from politics to academia, from the media to the blogosphere, from talk radio to the pulpit, has become a crippling epidemic that threatens the future of our country.  Something must be done.”

And now it has.
