April 26th at 7:30 p.m., Tarrant County is starting a Libertarian Book Discussion Group, and is going to get together in Fort Worth at the Downtown Cowtown Barnes & Noble (401 Commerce Street, Fort Worth) to discuss Ayn Rand’s “Anthem”, a mini-masterpiece about one man’s struggle against a collectivist state. No struggle on your part, though, as you can easily finish the book in one sitting, and the complete text is available on numerous websites.
Allen Patterson will deliver a brief history and summary of the book, followed by discussion time. Before we wrap up the conversation, we’ll vote on which book to read and discuss in June, and elect someone to lead that discussion. We intend to hold these book discussion events every other month, so “Capitalism And Freedom”, “Atlas Shrugged”, “Economics In One Lesson”, “The Rational Optimist”, “The Fountainhead”, “The Revolution: A Manifesto”, “The Road To Serfdom”, and “Eat The Rich” all await us.
Hope to see you there, and when you’re reading “Anthem” be grateful for your light bulbs. (That’s a joke. If you don’t get it, you will after you read the book.)
