PLF's Timothy Sandefur to speak at National Constitution Center Dec. 15
I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be speaking at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia on December 15, about my book, The Conscience of The Constitution. This is part of their Bill of Rights Day Book Festival. I’ll be joined by Jeffrey Rosen and by Prof. Kermit Roosevelt III, whose book The Myth of Judicial Activism, I critique in the last chapter of my book. Admission is only $5 per program or $15 for the whole day.
I got a chance to visit the Center only about four years ago, and was delighted by the excellent displays and the beautiful integration of the site into the Independence Hall campus. It’s a very cool thing to see, and I hope people will consider joining us for this exciting day.
