The Ideas of Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"

The Ayn Rand Institute:
"Ayn Rand's novel 'Atlas Shrugged' is the subject of a new exhibit to open on October 9, 2007, at the Frances Howard Goldwyn Hollywood Regional Library. Commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the novel's publication, the exhibit is jointly sponsored by the Los Angeles Public Library and the Ayn Rand Institute, and is curated by Jeff Britting, archivist of the Ayn Rand Archives, a special collection of the Ayn Rand Institute. The exhibit will include a reception open to the public on the date of the novel's fiftieth anniversary, October 10, at 7 pm, as well as four public talks devoted to the ideas of 'Atlas Shrugged' and their contemporary importance. The exhibit--a sequel to the library's 2006-07 exhibit on Ayn Rand's time in Hollywood--titled 'The Ideas of Ayn Rand's 'Atlas Shrugged,'' once again displays items from the Ayn Rand Archives, including rare and never-before-displayed reproductions of manuscript pages and notes from early drafts of the novel. Also on display will be original promotional materials produced by Random House, including a dollar-sign cigarette; an excerpt from Rand's manuscript for a television miniseries written shortly before her death; and the cover artwork of historic and foreign editions."
