You probably don’t know this, but the editor of the Human Life Review, Maria McFadden Mafucci, was present for the famous “great raid” that led to the launching of First Things. The Review will be hosting their annual Great Defender of Life dinner in New York on October 28th. Seats are available — they are expensive, but the dinner raises money for the most substantive intellectual source for the pro-life movement — as are ads for the dinner journal.
Several people from First Things should be there, as well as all sorts of interesting people (other interesting people, I mean, at least I hope that’s true). A good time will be had by all, and if you can go, not only will you enjoy yourself, you will be supporting a very important work.
