I encourage everyone to check out the HL Mencken Club website for some updates on our upcoming meeting on Halloween Weekend, as our star-studded line-up just keeps getting star-studded-er! Joining Pat Buchanan, Peter Brimelow, John Derbyshire, Thomas Woods Jr., Patrick Deneen, Christian Kopff, Paul Gottfried, and James Kurth will be New York Times bestselling author and Takimag regular Kevin Gutzman. 

Also, we’ve added a special rate for current undergrad and grad students and other unemployed deadbeats—only $50! (Basically, you’ll get to hear every speaker, but you’re on your own when it comes to meals. .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) Kevin DeAnna for details.)
