AF-Phoenix: Fireside Chat with Tim Sandefur, Author of Freedom’s Furies

February 27, 2023 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Greenwood Brewing

425 East Roosevelt Street, Phoenix, AZ 85004

Join us for a book event and learn how Isabel Paterson, Rose Wilder Lane, and Ayn Rand Found Liberty in an Age of Darkness!

America’s Future-Phoenix invites you to join us, along with our friends at Arizona Talks and the Goldwater Institute, to learn about author, Timothy Sandefur’s latest book: Freedom’s Furies.

In 1943, three books appeared that changed American politics forever: Isabel Paterson’s The God of the Machine, Rose Wilder Lane’s The Discovery of Freedom, and Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead. Together, they laid the groundwork for what became the modern libertarian movement.

Even more striking were the women behind these books: Paterson, a brilliant but misanthropic journalist whose weekly column made her one of the nation’s most important literary critics; Lane, a restless writer who secretly coauthored the Little House on the Prairie novels with her mother; and Rand, a philosophically inclined Russian immigrant ferociously devoted to heroic individualism. Working against the backdrop of changes in literature and politics, they joined forces to rally the nation to the principles of freedom that had come under attack at home and abroad.

Sometimes friends, at other times bitterly estranged, they became known as “the three furies of libertarianism.” Now, for the first time, author Timothy Sandefur examines their lives, ideas, and influences in the context of their times. Not a biography, but a story about personalities and ideas—about the literary, political, and cultural influences that shaped the destiny of freedom in America—Freedom’s Furies tells the dramatic story of three writers who strove to keep liberty alive in an age of darkness.

An engaging Question & Answer portion of the Garden Talk will conclude the night’s planned activities.

First 10 guests will receive a FREE copy of Timothy’s book! Freedom’s Furies is also available online for purchase prior to the event, just click this link!
