Book Discussion - "Letters to a Young Contrarian" by Christopher Hitchens

Letters to a Young Contrarian is classic Christopher Hitchens.  Written before he became known as one of the four horsemen of the New Atheism, “Letters...” is a revealing look into the mind of the man who made it his mission to swim against the current.  Filled with classic Hitchens quotes, this book reveals not only the how, but the why of standing your ground and facing bad ideas with wit, humor and clear thinking. 

Join us for a discussion of this fascinating book and share your own experiences of living a contrarian life.
