The American Ideas Institute Board of Directors invites you to join us for a private evening reception on Thursday, April 30, in support of The American Conservative magazine, website, and programs.

Rod Dreher will discuss his forthcoming book, How Dante Can Save Your Life, and editors Daniel McCarthy, Maisie Allison, Jonathan Coppage, Benjamin Schwarz, and Daniel Larison will be present to answer questions and meet our guests. The reception will be hosted by our Board Chairman in Dallas.

Attendance is free for members of The American Conservative’s Publisher’s Club. Publisher’s Club members are encouraged to join us early at 6 p.m.

Members of the American Ideas Institute (including all current subscribers to the print edition of The American Conservative) may purchase reception tickets for $200. Go here to become a member of the American Ideas Institute.

All others may purchase tickets for $250.

Donations to the American Ideas Institute are tax-deductible, and proceeds from this event will support the work of The American Conservative. Guests will receive a free signed copy of Rod’s book How Dante Can Save Your Life: The Life-Changing Wisdom of History’s Greatest Poem.

We hope you will join us on April 30 for this special event! Please contact Maisie Allison at mallison (at) if you have questions.

Click here to make your reservation, folks. I hope you will come. You know that when you get Larison and me in the same room with a bottle of Scotch and a piano, we’re all about singing Randy Newman classics in all eight Orthodox tones.

One of these days, we will have Uncle Chuckie materialize at one of these things, and it’ll be the best party since Truman Capote’s Black & White Ball.
