Christopher Hitchens speaking in Claremont

Christopher Hitchens will be speaking at Pitzer College in Claremont, CA on November 11th. It might be on "social change." Might be on democracy. I'm not quite sure. It just might be a rant about the pathetic status of society.
The purpose of Dining with Democracy is to facilitate discussion, debate, and dialogue about important contemporary political and social issues in a participatory atmosphere, and to bring the leaders of today to inspire the leaders of tomorrow.
I will - probably - be there, mainly because Hitchens is a master wordsmith. All right, really mostly because he is a well-known author and atheist. It is guaranteed to be entertaining. Just take a look at this article in Slate on Palin. Pure Gold.

God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, Christopher Hitchens, 2007.
