I know that many of you heard about these new Atlas Shrugged Reading Groups starting in Colorado this fall on my first podcast, but I thought I should post a text announcement too. Please feel free to spread the word!
In these reading groups, members read and discuss Ayn Rand’s epic novel Atlas Shrugged over the course of twenty weekly meetings. Each meeting lasts ninety minutes; it covers about sixty pages of the novel. Discussion is guided by questions prepared by me (Diana Hsieh) and given to members in advance.
FRO’s Atlas Shrugged Reading Groups are open to not just to Objectivists but to any fan of the novel interested in discussing the characters, events, and ideas of the novel in greater depth. Based on the group that we ran over the summer, I’m willing to guarantee that participants will learn more than they thought possible — and have lots of good fun.
About the three groups:
- Colorado Springs Atlas Shrugged Reading Group (Atlas3) will meet on Thursdays from 7:00 to 8:30 pm at Pike’s Perk (14 S Tejon Street) in Colorado Springs. It will start on October 1st. The group is managed by Diana Hsieh ([email protected]). You must have read Atlas Shrugged at least once before to participate in this group.
- Longmont Atlas Shrugged Reading Group (Atlas2) will meet on Thursdays from 7:00 to 8:30 pm at the Borders (1101 S. Hover Street) in Longmont. It will start on October 1st. The group is managed by Ari Armstrong ([email protected]). You must have read Atlas Shrugged at least once before to participate in this group.
Auraria Campus Objectivist Club will read Atlas Shrugged on the same model as FRO’s ASRGs. The club meets on Tuesdays, 6:00 to 7:30 pm, in Tivoli Room 140 on the Auraria Campus in Denver. Its first meeting was on August 25th; it will start Atlas Shrugged on September 15th. The Auraria Campus Objectivists is managed by Kirk Barbera ([email protected]). You need not have read Atlas Shrugged before to participate in this group.
