Hitchens to Speak About New Book in Washington, DC

Christopher Hitchens‘ new book, the autobiography Hitch-22, will be released on June 2nd:

It has the distinctive bright yellow cover of his previous books. However, this one is shinier. Therefore, it will be better. (Don’t question my logic.)

Hitchens will be speaking at the 6th & I Historic Synagogue in Washington, DC on June 13th to talk about the book. The event is sponsored by the Center for Inquiry DC and if you’re a “Friend of the Center,” you can get free admission!

There will likely be a huge crowd. And if you’re lucky, you’ll probably get to hear Hitchens debate himself. It’ll be awesome.

    As much as I love hearing Hitchens talk about things, I’m not sure I want to know about his life.

    I feel the same way about all my heroes. From Geddy Lee to Issac Newton, I could really care less how their mother treated them, or who their girl friend was when they were 25. I just love the body of work they created. Something must be wrong with me, because everyone always has little tidbits of private knowledge of the people they worship.

    Must be the hat. Perhaps it’s on too tight.

    I’ll probably pick up a copy if it comes to my library, but I have to admit, I often find biographies boring, because most people have boring childhoods, but no one ever wants to admit that and start out with something that is actually awesome. Actually, I lie, I have read some awesome biographies- mostly written about people long dead with barely recorded childhoods.

  • The big revelation:

    I believe he admits to affairs with men during college.

    god is capatalized in ‘God is Not Great’. Normal, but far from the cover of that book.

    ill wait until there is a review out or two before I decied to pick it up or not.
