Mark your calendar: On December 9 we will host a special year-end celebration with Tal Tsfany, president and CEO of the Ayn Rand Institute, who will showcase the Institute’s successes, followed by an exclusive presentation of Ayn Rand’s biographical recollections.

These 1960–61 audio recordings provide an extraordinary window into Rand’s life, work, and achievements — in her own words. At the event, we’ll share a thirty-minute selection curated from nearly forty hours of original audio, housed at the Ayn Rand Archives.

This online event — part of our monthly ARI Member Roundtable series — is open to supporters who donate $25 or more per month ($300+ year). They will receive an invitation with details on how to join the Zoom space.

Please become an ARI donor or increase your support today to attend this special event.

After the audio presentation, we’ll open breakout rooms hosted by ARI staff and scholars. At the end of our program, you’re welcome to stay for the free-form hangout. The Roundtable will last approximately ninety minutes; the hangout will remain open for another hour.

(This audio selection premiered in July at a private event for Benefactors and members of Atlantis Legacy, our planned giving program.)

Join us on Saturday, December 9, at 1:00 pm ET / 10:00 am PT.


If you value the ideas presented here, please become an ARI Member today.
