When: Saturday, May 28, 7:00pm to 10:00pm
Let's go retro! Way back in the day that salons met on Newbury Street (at Will and Hawver's place), we had a salon to discuss favorite books of Objectivists. I think this is a good way to involve many people in the conversation and cover many different topics so as to not cause heads to explode from the intensity of discussing one topic.
Everyone should discuss a book and explain why it is interesting period. This book should not be a part of the official canon (that is, not a book by Ayn Rand or Robert Heinlein, a book in the Ayn Rand Bookstore, and perhaps not in TOC's catalog either). Ideally, they should also explain why it is interesting to afficianados of Ayn Rand. It would be nice to have the actual book there, but not necessary. Please avoid bringing in books that were brought in last time, which included The Moral Animal Makers and Takers, A New Guide to Rational Living, The Selfish Gene, The Giver, Everything is Negotiable, and Spot's book about WWII espionage whose title I can't remember.
Newcomers get their first hit for free; everyone else pays $5 to me for refreshments [Unless Chris and George kindly prepare a lovely display of healthy foods (in which case you owe them $1 or $2. They should post if they intend to do this)].
Let's try to start at 7 sharp.
