Here’s a short conversation between Greg Salmieri and Ben Bayer about our experience reading Atlas Shrugged for the first time. For those of you who have read Atlas before, what can you say to those who haven’t read it about your general experience reading it for the first time? Remember: NO PLOT SPOILERS!

The Ayn Rand Institute invites you to join The Atlas Project, an eight-month, chapter-by-chapter, online discussion of Atlas Shrugged. To facilitate the discussion, ARI will host a weekly interactive broadcast on Facebook Live led by experienced teachers to help readers explore the intricate plot and abstract themes of Rand’s most philosophical novel.
