Another Ayn Rand Centenary

A friend of mine attended the Ayn Rand Centenary in Irvine back in February. She enjoyed it immensely — and for good reason, given all of the fabulous tales about Ayn Rand that she told upon her return. The New York Ayn Rand Centenary is coming up in late April. (I would attend, except that it’s right at the end of my semester.) It is pricey, but students get a 25% discount. Here’s the official announcement, with some formatting edits to make it blog-friendly:

Join us in celebration of the first one hundred years of the Ayn Rand Centuries–first, a look backward, and then a look forward. The Ayn Rand Institute and Objectivist Conferences are commemorating Ayn Rand’s centenary in an exciting weekend event in New York City, April 23-24, 2005.

Below is a summary of the event. Space is limited, so register soon! For more details, pricing and registration information, visit the Objectivist Conferences web site:

We hope to see you next month in New York City!
