CNN’s Sally Kohn writing book on civility

NEW YORK (AP) -- CNN political commentator Sally Kohn, who has heard a lot of trash talk in her job, is working on a book about the benefits of civility.

Algonquin Books, a division of Workman Publishing, told the Associated Press on Wednesday that Kohn’s book is tentatively titled, “Mean: How Being Nicer Than Average Can Save Humanity.” Publication is scheduled for spring 2018.

Algonquin said Kohn will draw on conversations with a wide range of experts to explore an increasingly nasty culture and the thin line between hostility and “vicious brutality.” Kohn gave a popular TED talk in 2013 on emotional correctness that was viewed by over 1 million people.
