A special celebration of the 102nd Birthday of Ayn Rand


  • Patricia Neal, who played Dominique in the movie version of The Fountainhead. Miss Neal will talk about working with Miss Rand. We’ll screen portions of the movie as a starting point for Miss Neal’s presentation.
  • Mike Wallace’s 1959 half-hour TV interview of Miss Rand.
  • Recollections of Miss Rand by people who knew her, including former students of the Nathaniel Branden Institute, such as Junto moderator Iris Bell, who was graphic designer of Miss Rand’s The Objectivist.
  • Stephen Shearer, Miss Neal’s biographer.
  • A birthday cake decorated with photos from The Fountainhead and of Miss Rand.
  • A book signing with Miss Neal and Mr. Shearer.

We gather at 7 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month. The meeting continues until about 10.?Discussions are lively, but polite. Participation by attendees is highly encouraged.
