On Tuesday I mentioned Mary Eberstadt’s new book The Loser Letters . On Tuesday, March 16, she’ll be discussing her new work at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C.:
Eberstadt will discuss the two levels on which this satire operates, one religious and one extrareligious, with particular attention to the latter. Not only religion itself, she argues, but also the rich and irreplaceable record of its aesthetic and other accomplishments is jeopardized by contemporary attempts to wipe the public square clean of God. Following Eberstadt’s remarks, Catherine Eberstadt, the author’s daughter, will read from the book.
