Christopher Hitchens LIVE: Hitch 22: A Memoir

in Conversation with Austin Dacey

Sunday, June 13th 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.


Person-CFI-Hitchens-Christopher.jpgJoin the Center for Inquiry DC for a discussion with outspoken public intellectual Christopher Hitchens about his new book, Hitch 22: A Memoir.

English-born and American by adoption, bohemian, all atheist and partly Jewish, Christopher Hitchens has held to a consistent thread of principle whether opposing war in Vietnam or supporting intervention in Iraq. As a foreign correspondent in some of the world’s nastiest places, a lecturer and teacher and an esteemed literary critic, Hitchens manifests a style that is ironic, witty, and tough-minded while his contradictions contain multitudes.

Christopher Hitchens was born in Portsmouth, England and worked in Britain as book reviewer for the Times and chief foreign correspondent for the Daily Express. After emigrating to the United States in 1981, he wrote the “Minority Report” column for The Nation. Since 1992, he has been columnist and contributing editor at Vanity Fair and, at different times, Washington editor and columnist for Harper’s magazine and American columnist and correspondent for the Spectator, the New Statesman, the Times Literary Supplement, Sunday Today, and the Sunday Correspondent. Hitchens writes regularly for the Atlantic Monthly and Slate, and is the author of God is Not Great, Letters to a Young Contrarian and Why Orwell Matters.

Christopher Hitchens will be interviewed by Austin Dacey, author of the The Secular Conscience and former United Nations representative for the Center for Inquiry.
