Ayn Rand and the Transformation of American Values
EVENT DESCRIPTION: One of the most popular novels in history American publishing is Atlas Shrugged. The book's author was born "Alicia Rosenbaum" in 1905 to Jewish parents in Czarist Russia. How Alicia Rosenbaum transformed herself into an ideological, cult-like "goddess" named Ayn Rand is the focus of this thought-provoking and informative lecture. Rand's legendary fame, which has grown immensely in recent years, becomes more understandable as Ronelle tells the story of the author's tumultuous life - with photos and film clips - in order to illuminate her struggle to be recognized and understood as a world class philosopher.
