"TRUTH UNCORKED: Where Wine Flows Like Conversation": Wine & Dinner with Susan Jacoby, Thurs., April 10

Join CFI-NYC for the inauguration of a new, monthly event combining fine food and wine with intimate, intelligent conversation. On the second Thursday of each month, a local author, intellectual, or artist will discuss his or her latest work with a small group of participants over wine, cocktails and dinner.

Our first event on April 10 will feature Susan Jacoby, author of the acclaimed NY Times bestseller The Age of American Unreason . Susan is the author of eight books, including Wild Justice: The Evolution of Revenge , a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 1984, and Freethinkers: A History of American Secularism , named a notable book of 2004 by the Washington Post and the NY Times . Her latest book, The Age of American Unreason , picks up in the early 1960s where the historian Richard Hofstadter left off in his classic work, Anti-Intellectualism in American Life . Susan's book addresses the astonishing growth of public ignorance, anti-rationalism, and anti-intellectualism that threaten the future of American democracy. Susan's new book has earned widespread praise, an extensive profile in the NY Times , and multiple television interviews, including appearances on the Today Show and Bill Moyers Journal .
