Previous books read and discussed by this book club have included The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America Since 1945 by George Nash, Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg,  In Defense of Freedom by Frank S. Meyer, The Road to Serfdom by F. A. Hayek, and Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt.

Come share a glass of wine, a snack, a little socializing and and hour and a half of vigorous discussion. Visit the meetup site at Conservative Fusion.

While the Meetup site list 30 members, there are about five to seven  regulars and a couple more people who have attended a time or two.  Once we get a solid core of a dozen or so people who attend regularly, this group will be closed to new members. Read some great books and join the discussion.
